ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – A St. Louis County man is in custody and could face charges for allegedly brandishing a weapon and threatening a Muslim man and his family who were looking at a house for sale in the area.
According to Sgt. Brian Schellman, a spokesman for the St. Louis County Police Department, officers were called to the 4800 block of Big Chief Drive just before noon on February 21.
Officers met with Rabie Ayoub, who told them he was with his family and they were looking at a house on nearby Sioux Drive. Ayoub was turning his vehicle onto Union Road from Big Chief Road when he encountered a man turning onto Big Chief Road from Union Road. Ayoub said the man in the other vehicle began yelling obscenities at his family and at one point yelled, “You Muslim? All of you should die!”
