Reports have surfaced that in very “bizarre coincidence,” a second Oklahoma man was arrested Friday for threatening to behead a co-worker.
An Oklahoma City fired nursing home employee, Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint with bail set at $1 million, according to The Oklahoman.
“We take these threats very seriously,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater told The Oklahoman.
The co-worker reported that Muriithi, a native of Kenya and self-described Muslim, threatened her while they were both working at the Bellevue Nursing Home last week, a police detective wrote in an arrest warrant affidavit.
The woman, who was not identified, said that Muriithi said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians.” When she asked him why, he replied, “This is just what we do,” according to the affidavit.
“The victim said Jacob asked her what time she got off work and she replied by asking him in a joking manner if he was going to kill her,” the detective wrote. “Jacob told the victim, ‘Yes,’ he was going to cut her head off. The victim asked Jacob what he was going to cut her head off with and he said, ‘A blade,’ then told her after he did it he was going to post it on Facebook.
“The victim said Jacob was serious when speaking and never made any statements that he was joking or playing around.”
Muriithi repeated the threat in front of another employee that he was going to use a blade as the woman left work the detective reported, according to The Oklahoman.
Coincidentally, the arrest was made the same day fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen – a Muslim convert – was arrested after he beheaded a co-worker.
