A homeless man claiming to be Jesus stabbed three people in an apartment in southeast Pittsburgh Monday.
The Pittsburgh-Tribune Review reports Rami Jasim, 33, has been charged with three counts of attempted homicide and aggravated assault. Police responded to a call around 2 a.m. from a man who said someone had tried to kill him in the city’s Carrick neighborhood. Officers arrived at the scene to find two men and a woman suffering from stab wounds.Rami Jasim
One of the men was hospitalized in critical condition and the other’s status was stable. The female victim’s condition is serious.
One of the apparent victims told police he’d offered Jasim a place to stay because the man had no home. The quartet was reportedly “just hanging out” and talking on the morning that the suspect stated he was Jesus, then went on a stabbing spree.
Investigators on the scene heard noises and discovered the alleged assailant was hiding in the rafters in the building’s basement. Jasim was “uncooperative” when questioned by police.
