Abdulrahman Ali is a Somalian man who arrived in America four years ago. He is accused of sexually assaulting a gas station attendant in a bathroom at Gordy’s Travel Plaza in Mapleton.
When authorities arrived, Ali refused to open the bathroom door, claiming that the victim was his wife. Police were forced to kick down the door, and found the woman injured and crying.
“Documents say she was unsure if Ali was speaking English or a different language, but she could recognize one thing Ali said while they were in the bathroom,” the Valley News Live reporters. “She heard Ali utter ‘Allah Akbar’ which, in Arabic means God is the greatest.”
