The FBI is investigating a vicious knife attack in Roanoke, Virginia as a possible ISIS-inspired rampage.

According to Fox News, the suspect, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui, is accused of entering an apartment on Saturday and seriously injuring a man and woman inside. Witnesses say he was yelling "Allah Akbar" at the time.

While few details are being released, authorities believe Farooqui may have been trying to behead at least one of the victims. It also appears he chose his targets at random.

Farooqui, who has been arrested, was being watched by authorities who say he may have tried to sneak into Syria last year to meet with ISIS.
