The family that prays together, jihads together.
The knife wielding Muslima who laid in wait to lunge at police officers with a butcher knife is the sister of Muhammed Momtaz Al-Azhari – the jihadi arrested earlier this week by the FBI for conspiring with Islamic State (ISIS) to carry out Islamic attacks Florida.
Woman shot, killed after charging Temple Terrace officer with knife, officials sayTemple Terrace police Chief Kenneth Albano said he doesn’t know why the woman attacked the officer outside City Hall.By Tampa Times, May 2020:
TEMPLE TERRACE — Police officers shot and killed a woman who charged at one of them with a butcher knife outside of City Hall on Friday afternoon, officials said.
“Had no alternative but to shoot,” said Temple Terrace police Chief Kenneth Albano at a news conference held after the incident.
The woman was identified as 21-year-old Heba Momtaz Alazhari, police said.
Spectrum Bay News 9 reported that she is the sister of Muhammed Momtaz Al-Azhari, a 23-year-old Tampa man arrested earlier this week by the FBI on a federal charge of attempting to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization, the Islamic State group. Two people speaking on behalf of the family confirmed that to the Tampa Bay Times.
The officer who was attacked was not named by officials, who said he suffered non life-threatening injuries.
The incident took place at about 1 p.m. The woman arrived at City Hall and asked for an officer’s help, officials said. Then when a uniformed officer went outside, the chief said she charged at him with a knife for “unknown reasons.”
She was quickly shot by officers, officials said. The chief did not say how many officers were involved, how many fired their weapons or how many times the woman was shot. The officer who was attacked did fire his weapon, Albano said.
A security camera outside City Hall captured the first 30 seconds of the confrontation. There is no sound, but Albano said he heard the officer shouting at the woman to “drop the knife, drop the knife” several times before she was shot.
The video released by the city showed the woman sitting outside of City Hall, her hands in her lap, waiting for the officer to approach.
The officer walked toward her and stood between her and the camera. He appeared to be within 5 feet of her. Where she hid the knife cannot be seen. Then the officer suddenly jumped back. The knife could now be seen in her right hand.
The officer quickly backed up as the armed woman approached, according to the video, and his right hand appeared to reach for his sidearm.
The woman quickly closed in, and the officer ran to his right as she slashed the knife at him from right to left. She appeared to just miss him as they run out of camera view. All of that took place in 15 seconds.
