“I’m going to cut your head off like your people do to us,” is what homeless man Brian Boshell, 45, of Brooklyn, New York yelled as he chased and attempted to throw a metal garbage bin at Arab American Linda Sarsour—Executive Director of the Arab American Association of New York.
Sarsour said in an interview with PIX 11 that she was appalled that the man was attempting to harm her over “an event [ISIS] that’s happening across the world,” and has nothing to do with her. “I’m just as afraid of ISIS or afraid of terrorist attacks just as anybody else is,” Sarsour said.
Nearby residents say that “he’s [Boshell] always around … drinks a lot” and is well known around the area
Boshell has been charged with “menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, and aggravated harassment.”
