Just days after a recent Muslim convert allegedly beheaded a female co-worker in Oklahoma, another man has been charged with making threats about beheading a female co-worker, according to police.
Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, age 30, is now locked up and being treated as a potential terrorist – with a $1 million bond.
On Sept. 13th, police say while working at the Bellevue Nursing Home on North Portland he threatened a co worker..
(He) “made a comment that he was a member of ISIS and that ISIS cut off the heads of Christians,” said Capt. Dexter Nelson of the Oklahoma City Police.
The alleged victim then asked “if he had a guillotine set up outside?” according to police.
The police report says Muriithi, a citizen of Kenya claimed he was going to “cut her head off with a dull blade then post it on Facebook.”
On Thursday, Alton Nolen beheaded Colleen Hufford, 54, and stabbed Johnson, 43, multiple times before being shot by reserve police officer and company CEO Mark Vaughan, police say. There is speculation that Nolen tried to convert other co-workers to Islam.
In the case of the alleged beheading threat at a nursing home: “She initially thought he was joking,” police say.
But after learning more about ISIS, the terrorist group running rampant in the Middle East, the victim called police three days later fearful of her safety.
Police claim they were seeking misdemeanor charges against Muriithi for threatening an act of violence.
Then came Thursday — the savage attack at Vaughan Foods in nearby Moore, Oklahoma.
“If he is joking it’s his bad misfortune that somebody was beheaded,” Nelson said.
Muriithi was arrested at his Northwest Oklahoma a day after attack at Vaughn Foods attack.
Muriithi is still in jail with $1 million bond accused of violating the state’s anti-terrorist act.
Whether his alleged threat was real…. or a real bad attempt at a joke… has yet to be determined.
Muriithi has told police he is not a Muslim. The District Attorney will decide if he will be formally charged.
Police say they are now investigating whether he has any connection to Alton Nolan, the man accused of actually severing the head of a co-worker.
