Rescue units were called to Sherif Elganainy’s parents home on Carissa Lane Wednesday morning. WTSP in Tampa reports:
“The mother smells some chemicals, the father starts ventilating the house, they get into a confrontation with their son, Sherif. He then pushes the father and the mother,” Nocco said.
The father was taken to the hospital and deputies found some type of chemicals and marijuana in Sherif’s room.
“Mom made statements to detectives that when he gets mad he says things to her like I’m a terrorist or part of ISIS,” Nocco said.
At that point, the terrorist investigation was on with multiple federal agencies and the bomb squad to check out the unknown substances.
It starts out calmly, but when the police realize the suspect, Sherif Elganainy, is carrying a large knife, the situation quickly escalates from there.
During his scuffle with the police, the suspect tried to grab the cop’s gun!
Here is the news conference following the arrest of the Muslim terror suspect:
