Sword-Wielding Muslim Charges California Deputies Screaming "Allah Akbar"

The deputies halted him with a blast from a bean bag shotgun.


There's a man who never watched Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark or he would have known how that was going to end.

A sword-wielding 33-year-old Rancho Cucamonga man charged deputies while hollering “Allah Akbar,” sheriff’s officials say, until the deputies halted him with a blast from a bean bag shotgun.

Montasir Ishag was arrested at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, along the 9400 block of Glenaire Court and booked for investigation of attempted murder of a police officer, jail records show. His bail is $1 million.

“When deputies entered the front door, … Ishag charged the deputies with a sword, while yelling ‘Allah Akbar,’” according to the statement. “Deputies used a less than lethal shotgun.”

This social media profile probably belongs to the same man and it says that Ishag is "a 32 year old Arab_African American engineer from Los Angeles. I love all types of women, and get along with girls off all races and classes."

"I've been around the world before I finally landed in Rancho Cucamonga. I am into electronics and am always analyzing life and existence, and am sometimes a little too deep and like thinking too much. My sense of humor is kinda weird and it takes time to understand it, but I LOVE to laugh."

I guess the deputies didn't get the joke.
