KENTWOOD, MI – A woman has been arrested after she demanded money and threatened violence at the At-Tawheed Islamic Center Monday, Jan. 2, Kentwood Police Capt. Richard Roberts said.
Police responded to the center at 3357 E. Paris Ave. SE at 8:47 a.m. after a caller reported a woman was standing outside the mosque, covering her face and holding a gun.
Roberts said a service was not going on at the time and the mosque door was locked but a small group of people inside heard the woman pulling on the door.
Members inside answered and the woman demanded money. She indicated she had a weapon in her purse and Roberts said she made reference to “blowing something up.”
