VICTORVILLE,CALIF:(VVNG.com)- A suspected “radicalized muslim” appeared in court on Tuesday morning for a preliminary hearing. The 57-year-old Victorville man who allegedly chased his neighbor with a sword on the evening of Monday, December 7th on the 14000 block of La Paz Drive.
As he chased the terrified neighbor, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Spokesman, Sgt. Dave Burgess he yelled, “I would die and kill for Allah”. The man, identified as Mohamed Ahmed Elrawi, was arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center after midnight on December 8th.
No one was injured during the incident, but due to the nature of the report deputies obtained a search warrant. During the search of his home they located items leading them to believe Elrawi was a radicalized muslim. Elrawi’s past church attempted to debunk the accusation citing mental illness as the cause rather than his religious affiliation.
Elrawi denied the two felony counts against him which include, attempted murder and criminal threats which would result in death or great bodily injury at his arraignment hearing on December 10, 2015.
Elrawi, who is still in custody at the High Detention Center with $1,000,000 bail, appeared to his preliminary hearing Tuesday morning only to have it continued for January 12th due to the unavailability of a witness.
