A fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested after a female coworker reported that he threatened to behead her, the Oklahoman said.
Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is behind bars on a terrorism complaint, the Oklahoman reported, adding that his bail is set at $1 million.
Muriithi — a native of Kenya who reportedly identified himself as a Muslim — was working with the victim for the first time Sept. 19 at the Bellevue Nursing Home when he made the threats, the arrest warrant affidavit said.
Muriithi told her that he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the police detective’s affidavit noted.
More from the Oklahoman:
The woman said she asked him why they kill Christians and he replied, “This is just what we do,” the detective reported.
“The victim said Jacob asked her what time she got off work and she replied by asking him in a joking manner if he was going to kill her,” the detective wrote. “Jacob told the victim, ‘Yes,’ he was going to cut her head off. The victim asked Jacob what he was going to cut her head off with and he said, ‘A blade,’ then told her after he did it he was going to post it on Facebook.
“The victim said Jacob was serious when speaking and never made any statements that he was joking or playing around.”
The woman reported Muriithi repeated the threat as she left work, saying in front of another employee that he was going to use a blade, the detective reported.
Muriithi was arrested on Friday, the Oklahoman reported, the same day police in Moore say Alton Nolen beheaded a coworker after he was fired Thursday from Vaughan Foods. Nolen is reportedly a recent convert to Islam.
