Police have confirmed a 16th victim as authorities continue searching for a knife-wielding serial stabber suspected of killing five people and injuring 11 others on Flint-area streets.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said Tuesday a 27-year-old Flint man told Michigan State Police that he was walking alone on the city's northwest side in the early morning hours July 27, when he was approached by a white man who asked for directions and stabbed him three times.

The victim, who is black, was treated at a hospital and released. All but two of Michigan's 16 victims were black.

The victim told police the suspect was driving a dark green Chevy S-10 Blazer with tan trim, with a model year ranging from 1995 to about 2004. The vehicle is linked to similar assaults in Toledo, Ohio and Leesburg, Va.

    16 Victims? Why are the police not setting up a setting to get this guy? He seems to go after every black guy he sees on the street so I think it would be pretty easy to set up a sting and stop this
