Suspect Identified in Las Vegas Mass Stabbing Attack

Last Thursday, a man went on a stabbing rampage in downtown Las Vegas, slashing eight people and killing two of them.

There was no known cause for the horrific homicides; witnesses said the man just suddenly started attacking people.

The suspect was quickly arrested and charged with a double homicide and six counts of attempted homicide. Thankfully, the suspect is being kept without bail after this heinous crime.

Who is the Attacker?

The suspect has been named Yoni Barrios from Guatemala. He has no papers in the United States and is an illegal alien who came into the country via Mexico.

What’s even worse is Barrios is a criminal. He’s already got a record in California; although Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) didn’t even have him in their systems.

The attack occurred on Thursday after Barrios allegedly requested a selfie with a group of female exotic dancers. He was carrying a long knife when he asked them to come to pose with him, so they said no thanks.

Barrios then apparently became extremely angry and started slashing and murdering all of them in sight. In testimony to police later, he claimed they were mocking how he was dressed and “laughing” at him.

Soft-On-Crime Policies Kill Again

Why was Barrios in the country? Thank insecure southern borders and the treasonous neglect of the Biden-Harris regime.

Why was he walking the streets of Las Vegas with a knife? It’s due to the unlawful soft-on-crime policies of the left, in this case, of former Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey.

Barrios, 32, was charged with domestic assault in California, but Lacey never tried it, having it dismissed for failing to come up within a year on the docket.

For that reason, Barrios was able to walk free without being sentenced to any time behind bars. The left’s open borders and soft-on-crime policies are killing this country.

Who Are the Victims?

The victims have been named Brent Hallett and Maris DiGiovanni, brutally murdered in this senseless attack.

Fellow showgirl dancer Anna Westby, 26, says Barrios approached and was showing off the knife to them before rapidly attacking and stabbing DiGiovanni directly in the heart.

Westby held DiGiovanni as the young woman died, the latest in a long line of victims of illegal alien psychopaths running wild in the country with no record of their whereabouts.

This is, sadly, just the latest in a long line of horrific violence committed by illegal immigrants.

Although the majority are not criminals, a lack of information on who is in the country means many psychopaths and criminals are running wild. This includes people who have already been deported and come back.

Keep in mind this July, for example. An already deported illegal returned, murdered a 29-year-old woman and her teen son, and ditched their bodies to rot in Tallapoosa County, Alabama.
