The Florida authorities recently arrested a 17-year-old Muslim teenager who allegedly stabbed a 13-year-old child to death and injured two other persons during a sleepover party. Police investigation revealed that the Florida Muslim teen watched violent ISIS videos and read the Coran the night before stabbing his victim to death.
Florida Muslim Teenager Wanted to Join ISIS
During a recent press conference, a Florida law enforcement official declared that 17-year-old Corey Johnson has been taken into custody and charged in the stabbing death of 13-year-old Jovanni Sierra. The incident allegedly occurred on early Monday morning at Kyle Bancroft’s Ballenisles Country Club residence.
According to the police report, Johnson was under police surveillance long before stabbing Sierra. On more than one occasions, the teen expressed his desire to join terroristic faction ISIS and even threatened to bomb out his high school. The FBI reveals that the Florida Muslim tried to contact ISIS via social media.
On Monday, Johnson was invited to a sleepover party hosted by Kyle Bancroft, one of his friends. The teen told the authorities that he spent the night before going to the party reading the Coran in order to get the courage needed to commit the deed.
According to the perpetrator’s testimony, at approximately 4:00 a.m., he woke up and, using a hunting knife, he stabbed Sierra several times and slit his throat at the end. Elaine Simon was awoken by Sierra’s cries for help at approximate 6:00 a.m.
After she tried helping her brother, the Florida Muslim teenager stabbed her at least ten times. Dane Bancroft’s, Kyle’s brother, was stabbed at least 30 times when he went to alert his mother.
The Florida Muslim teen claimed that ever since he entered the house, he had an urge to kill the family, starting with the mother.
Following the incident, Jovanni Sierra was declared dead, and the other two victims were rushed to the hospital were the doctors managed to stabilize them.
Johnson was taken into custody and charged with first-degree premeditated murder and two counts of attempted murder. Other charges will soon follow given the teenager’s history.
When confronted by the authorities, Johnson said that he killed Jovanni first because the child said that celebrities are like gods and that went against his religion.
