An Arab male is currently being interrogated by the NYPD after screaming “Jihad threats” in a Boro Park Shul.
Highly credible sources tell YWN that sometime early Monday afternoon, a 36-year-old male entered the ‘Sephardish Shul’ located on 14th Avenue and 45th Street and began reading a paper with various “Jihad-type threats”.
Thanks to the quick response of Boro Park Shomrim, the suspect was quickly apprehended, and was placed under arrest by officers of the NYPD’s 66th Precinct.
Detectives from the NYPD INTEL Division are currently speaking with the ‘Middle-Eastern man’ at the 66 Station-House.
Deputy Inspector Peter DiBlasio along with Brooklyn South Chief Joseph Fox reminds the community “if you see something, say something”.
Additionally, Inspector DiBlasio tells YWN that there is no reason for concern, and assures the community that extra officers have been added to keep the streets safe throughout Purim.
