SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – A man accused of threatening to shoot up a city building has been arrested on a charge of making a terroristic threat.
According to an arrest affidavit obtained by KTSA News, a man was so alarmed by the threats that he took a note to the manager of the City of San Antonio’s Development Services Department . It stated that Abdalkarim Abdalaziz threatened to “come over and blow the place up.” The man, a contractor hired by Abdalaziz, said he has known him for about 18 years and knows that he owns a “M16 type” rifle. He refused to say anything more to investigators.
A woman told police that when she and the contractor went to Abdalaziz’s business at 1603 West Commerce Street to collect money they were owed, he became aggressive and started throwing things.
She says Abdalaziz complained about having to get permits and stated that he wanted to beat up the manager of the Development Services Office and shoot up the place.
According to the arrest affidavit, the supervisor of the Development Services Office claims Abdalaziz had caused a disturbance in the past and had to be escorted out of the building. Security has been stepped up because of the threats.
The 44-year-old businessman was arrested Tuesday and charged with making a terroristic threat.
