Terrifying news is coming out of Texas after an officer was attacked by an alleged member of the Islamic State terror group (ISIS), then made a troubling find in the Muslim man’s car.
According to a local CBS affiliate, police in Arlington, Texas were alerted to an armed man attacking civilians in the area. When the arresting officer eventually caught up with the man, he was able to subdue him using his taser after the suspect made an aggressive move towards the officer, and a subsequent search of the attacker’s vehicle turned up some rather troubling items – an AK47, a pistol, and a knife.
CBS DFW has more on the alarming incident:
It was around 3 p.m. Tuesday when police say an Arlington School Resource Officer was driving to the station when two people flagged him down. The residents told the officer about a possible aggravated assault by a man who was believed to be armed.
The officer found Sadek’s vehicle, and made a traffic stop near Green Oaks and Waterview Drive. It was then police say Sadek got out of his car and began walking toward the officer, in what was perceived as an aggressive manner.
Since the officer didn’t see Sadek brandishing any type of weapon he holstered his gun and took out a taser…
The officer used the taser on Sadek after the two got into a physical fight. But, with the help of two private citizens, the suspect was eventually taken into custody.
Apparently Wahib Sadik is a Muslim, and he told authorities that he’s a member of ISIS, although his claims have yet to actually be confirmed. Police notified the FBI about the incident, and the agency is now conducting its own investigation into Sadik.
