On Saturday, Fox News First reported that the Egyptian man who was arrested for stabbing a Boston-area rabbi had exceeded his student visa and was in the United States illegally, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Khaled Awad approached Shlomo Noginski as he was leaving The Shaloh House Jewish day school on Thursday. He ran up to the rabbi, a father of 12, and demanded his car keys at gunpoint, causing Noginski to run across the street into a park. That’s where Awad caught up with him and stabbed him repeatedly in the arm.
After his arrest, ICE issued an arrest warrant for Awad’s custody after the criminal proceedings are over. He is currently being held without bail and his first hearing is scheduled for July 8.

Prosecutors are weighing whether or not to charge him with a hate crime. The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office has launched an investigation to determine whether the Egyptian national acted on anti-Semitism.
The attack comes after a former roommate of Awad, who is also Jewish, had to present a restraining order after he was physically assaulted in his kitchen last fall. A former friend of the Egyptian citizen too explained to CBS Boston how the 24-year-old has a past of being “violent” and “anti-Semitic.”
“He started to get violent. He was very anti-Semitic. He often spoke like all kinds of Jewish jokes. I thought he was joking at first and then I started to see the seriousness in his comments. “- Eric Vailente, a longtime friend from CBS Boston.
With blatant anti-Jewish rhetoric constantly being promoted by prominent Democrats, it is no wonder we have been seeing these types of crimes skyrocket over the past year.
