Police in Leesburg, Virginia say they believe they have a serial killer in their area.

Leesburg Police Chief Joseph Price says he's confident, though not certain, that the same man is responsible for two stabbings and a hammer attack in his town as well as murders in Michigan. The attacks in Leesburg took place last week.

Officials believe the same man fatally stabbed five people and wounded ten others in Michigan since May. Meanwhile, police in Ohio are investigating whether the same man is linked to a stabbing in Toledo.

The suspect is described as white man in his late twenties to early thirties, five feet 11 to six feet two and weighing approximately 180 pounds.

Officials say he has been almost exclusively targeting black men. Survivors of the attacks say he would either ask for help with directions or a broken down vehicle.
