A former Ball State University foreign student, Khalid Sulaiman Bilal (below) from Saudi Arabia, has been deported after choking an employee, assaulting multiple people including several police officers and threatening to kill everyone at a Goodwill store in Muncie last March.
WISH TV Khalid Sulaiman Bilal, 24, grabbed a female employee by the throat and began punching her after trying to convert her to Islam, then struck and broke the hand of an officer who tried to restrain him at a Goodwill store in Muncie, Indiana.
According to reports, Bilal then went on to break an officer’s hand after an attempt to place Bilal into custody. Bilal was later tased after charging another officer that arrived on scene. After the tasing, the officer was eventually able to corral Bilal into handcuffs. The suspect then began to kick the officer repeatedly with both legs, causing authorities to shackle his legs.
Bilal was transported to Ball Memorial Hospital where he later attacked staff and repeatedly punched an officer in the face.
FOX59 The Muncie Star Press reports that Bilal was sent back to his native country, Saudi Arabia. Delaware County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Eric Hoffman filed a court motion this week to dismiss charges of battery with injury; battery with no injury to police; disorderly conduct; strangulation; battery with injury to police; intimidation; and resisting law enforcement against Bilal because he was deported.
FOX59 Bilal allegedly entered the store and began forcefully trying to convert people to Islam while claiming to be the Prophet Muhammad and trying to place his hands on them. He struck and strangled an employee and told her he would kill her if she didn’t convert to Islam. He attacked responding officers, breaking one of the officer’s hands and repeatedly kicking the other. During the scuffle, Bilal yelled “allahu akbar,” a phrase commonly used by Muslim terrorists before a violent attack, according to Homeland Security.
