Police exploring background of Seattle man arrested in vehicle attack outside L.A. synagogue

Authorities are trying to determine the motivations and background of a 32-year-old Seattle man who allegedly tried to run down two men outside of a synagogue in Hancock Park last week in an attack that police have described as a hate crime.

Mohamed Mohamed Abdi was arrested outside of Congregation Bais Yehuda in the 300 block of La Brea Avenue Friday night and held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after he yelled a number of anti-Semitic insults and barreled his car toward the two men around 9 p.m., Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief Horace Frank said.

Abdi was driving a rental car past the synagogue when he began yelling profanity at a group of worshipers near La Brea and Oakwood Avenues, Frank said.

Concerned by Abdi’s actions, two men walked away from the larger group but kept their eyes trained on Abdi, who then made a U-turn and ran a red light while accelerating toward them, Frank said. The two men managed to evade him, and Abdi crashed into a parked car a short time later.

“That monitoring, that vigilance, saved their lives,” LAPD Chief Michel Moore said at a news conference Monday.

No one was injured at the scene, and Abdi is being held in lieu of $55,000 at Men’s Central Jail downtown, police said. A knife was found in Abdi’s car, but Frank said police do not believe he owns any firearms.

Frank expects the LAPD will ask the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office to pursue assault charges against Abdi. The department is working in conjunction with the FBI’s Los Angeles field office to investigate Abdi, and federal prosecutors may consider possible hate crime or domestic terror charges against him.

If only there was SOME clue as to what motivated this Boy Scout to attack Jews. It's sooo hard!

Certainly a difficult mystery. But if they didn’t want their readers to solve it, they wouldn’t have put the perp’s name up front like that. I’d give them a little credit.

Why would a guy named Mohamed Mohamed Abdi with an IQ of 70 hate Jooze? Really puzzling, that one! < / sarcasm >

Motive: extreme jealousy and resentment of an exceptional culture...
