The machete-wielding migrant started attacking cars but he attacked and wounded an elderly woman.

In Shelburne, a suburb of the Burlington metro area, a machete-wielding Somali immigrant was placed under arrest for attempted murder. He was arrested after he assaulted a charity worker for Meals on Wheels. The woman who regularly volunteered for the route was 73 years old.

Once again, because the news media isn’t interested in the narrative, they don’t bother to make this a national news story. The attack took place at a property called Harbor Place.

WCAX reports, “Burlington man charged with motel machete attack.

Harbor Place provides temporary emergency housing with services, run by the Champlain Housing Trust. Early Friday, police responded to calls of a man with a knife smashing out car windows.

“On arrival we found that this person who was reported to have a knife, had actually attacked an elderly female,” said Corporal Jon Marcoux of Shelburne Police.

That female, was a 73-year-old Meals on Wheels volunteer who was dropping off meals on the regular route. It is unclear what provoked the attack, but police say 32-year-old Abukar Ibrahim was the one with a machete. He attacked the woman who sustained multiple injuries. She was sent to the hospital, and later released.

Ibrahim is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, on the charge of attempted murder.

Here’s some local commentary though he occasionally uses bad language.
