Man Beat Bicyclist With Bat Near Light Rail Station

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 36-year-old Minneapolis man is accused of beating a man in the head with a baseball bat near a light rail station in Minneapolis, according to charges filed in Hennepin County Court on Thursday.

Mohamed Ahmed Abufatima was charged with second-degree assault in connection with the incident.

According to court documents, police responded to a light rail station in Minneapolis on Tuesday on a report of a man being assaulted with a baseball bat. When authorities arrived, they spotted a man later identified as Abufatima grabbing the male victim by the shoulders.

The victim was beating screaming for help and bleeding from his head, according to the complaint. The victim told emergency personnel that Abufatima beat him in the head with a baseball bat as he was riding his bicycle home.

The victim was transported to the hospital and received multiple stitches to the back of his head. Abufatima was arrested and is still in custody and faces up to one year in jail and $14,000 in fines if convicted.

      I thought it was funny.

  2. jan says:

    It says in the article, “if convicted” Does that mean that he possibly won’t be convicted and set free to repeat his rotten deeds?

    1. Well in theory says:

      he’s innocent until proven guilty.

      But I guess we could always give him a fair trial and then hang him.

      1. hard rains says:

        It sound like you mean you’d like a hanging first and a trial second to me.

    That rich,vibrant Somali culture adds so much love to the fabric that is America..I applaud the churches that sponsored this peace loving culture to Minnesota..Multi Culturalism is such a beautiful thing..BTW > have the Seward Market killers been sentenced yet?

    1. Well do you mean says:

      the guys who killed those three Somali men who owned and worked at that convenience store?

      Sentencing any day now. First degree murder. How do you spell life?

      The churches should be ashamed of themselves for polluting Minnesota with so much violence and crime all in the name of a mythology. The churches did the same thing after the fall of Saigon. The largest enclaves in the US of Hmong is in St. Paul and Eau Claire-and I don’t have to mention here about the precipitous rise in gangs and crime that resulted from that pious effort. I think the churches should stick to their delusions and stop trying to be so charitable; we could do with a little less hospitality and a lot more door slamming. Peace.
