Federal authorities arrested a Muslim man who wanted to use the U Haul van he stole to run down a crowd at the National Harbor waterfront in Maryland. He wanted to emulate the attack on pedestrians on Bastille Day in Nice that killed 86 and injured more than 450 others. The religion of peace strikes again. Police arrested Rondell Henry, 28, for the transport of a stolen vehicle across state lines. Prosecutors have asked that he be held without bond because he is a flight risk and a danger to the community. The FBI said he had become radicalized by watching beheading videos.
“He was a computer engineer by trade, and knew nothing of explosives or firearms. But he knew how to drive, and he also knew of the terrorist truck attack in Nice, France. So the defendant decided to use what was readily at his disposal and conduct a vehicular attack on a crowd of innocents,” federal prosecutors said in court documents.
“I was just going to keep driving and driving and driving. I wasn’t going to stop,” Henry told authorities, according to a court document filed.
Two weeks ago, Alexandria police were notified that a U-Haul truck had been stolen from a parking garage — Rondell Henry reportedly left his BMW at the garage where he stole the U-Haul.
The next day, the stolen U-Haul was found at the National Harbor in Maryland — surveillance footage showed Rondell Henry driving the stolen U-Haul and he was arrested a few hours later hiding in a boat in the harbor.
Before Henry decided to drive to the Maryland harbor, he drove around Dulles International Airport and almost plowed over “disbelievers” there but he abandoned that idea when he was unable to get past security, the DOJ said.
