Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, screaming anti-Muslim insults at two women before he fatally stabbed two men and wounded another who tried to stop him on Friday. According to police and civil rights organizations, Christian had a history of such behavior, reports The New York Times.
“The police also said Mr. Christian will be arraigned on Tuesday and could face additional charges,” notes The Times.
Apparently, Christian attacked the three men when they tried to calm him while they were on a commuter Portland commuter train. Christian was ranting and talking disparagingly about the women, in particular, a woman wearing a hijab, says The Times.
