A Florida gas station clerk was arrested last week after a teenage girl he threatened to rape at knifepoint stabbed him.
Mohammad Munshi, 67, of Hollywood, Florida, was booked on a charge of armed sexual assault on a victim 12 or older, according to an arrest affidavit viewed by local ABC affiliate WPLG Local 10 News.
The victim went to a Chevron station in Dania Beach at around 3 a.m. on April 7 to buy some microwavable dinners, 7 News Miami reports. When she went to go use the bathroom, Munshi allegedly locked the station’s front door and proceeded to follow her.
The girl pushed Munshi off after he reportedly unzipped his pants and grabbed her buttocks, but then he allegedly took out a pocket knife, 7 News reports. The victim, however, was able to grab the blade and stab him before running out of the station.
She didn’t contact authorities afterward due to her immigration status, WPLG reports.
About 20 minutes after the incident, Munshi asked a customer who entered the store to call the police, according to 7 News.
After he was taken to a local hospital, Munshi claimed that his stab wound was the result of him trying to thwart a shoplifter.
"However, upon reviewing the surveillance footage of the incident, it was observed that the victim did not shoplift," Deputy Louis Bonhomme wrote in his affidavit, according to WPLG.
Munshi appeared in court on Monday, 7 News reports. A judge ordered him to surrender his Bangladeshi passport.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to Oxygen.com on Wednesday that Munshi posted $75,000 bond on Tuesday.
