Pardon the click-bait, the man is said to be “emotionally-disturbed”, and does not have any known ties to the infamous knife-misusers.
“A 23-year-old man claiming that he’s a member is ISIS threatened paramedics with a butterfly knife in Brooklyn on Sunday morning, police said.
Jancer Abreu, whom officials described as emotionally disturbed, was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and harassment.
Shortly after 6 a.m., at the corner of Wycoff Ave. and Stanhope St., in Bushwick, Abreau began waving the butterfly blade and repeatedly shouted, “I am ISIS,” before cops cuffed him, officials said.
Abreau did not appear to be a genuine Islamic State fighter.”
No one was injured in the incident.
