Agnew said Skinner will be charged with breaking and entering with a deadly weapon with the intent to commit a serious crime. He has asked federal authorities to assist in the investigation. It is believed the FBI will pursue federal charges against Skinner.

Skinner had entered the US last Wednesday at Los Angeles International Airport. He had flown from New Zealand to Australia, Australia to Los Angeles, and Los Angeles to Washington DC. From DC, he took a Greyhound bus to Richmond.

In Richmond he stayed at Hosteling International USA, according to investigators.

"This was not random, not spontaneous, this was something very planned," Agnew said.

It wasn't immediately known if Skinner has an attorney. His hometown in New Zealand was not given by authorities.
