TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- A church janitor in Ohio who police think was stabbed by a man suspected in a string of 18 attacks in three states says what hurts the most is that he was stabbed after chatting with his assailant.
Tony Leno says the attacker knew he "wasn't that bad of a guy."
Leno is now recovering from wounds from the attack three weeks ago in Toledo. No charges have been filed.
Elias Abuelazam, an Israeli citizen who has been living in the U.S., is charged in one stabbing in Michigan. Prosecutors say they plan to bring more charges.
Five men were killed during a series of stabbings in the Flint, Mich., area.
Leno says he doesn't understand how someone could learn to hate somebody so much.
Authorities believe attacks in Virginia also are related.
