Brockton police have charged a man claiming to be a Saudi Arabian with assault and making threats to “blow up” Signature Heathcare Brockton Hospital.
A Saturday night incident in which Saud Alonize allegedly assaulted a hospital worker and made threats against Signature Healthcare Brockton ended with police taking the 21-year-old into custody as he demanded to speak to the Saudi Arabian Consulate, Enterprise News has reported.
Alonize, at the hospital due to an injury suffered during an earlier altercation, grabbed and physically assaulted a hospital employee and made threats against the facility, police said in a related WCVB article.
“He made threats to blow up the hospital,” Brockton Police Lt. Kenneth LeGrice was quoted by WCVB. “He was attempting to throw blood at the nurses who were trying to tend to him.”
Alonize was arrested after police said he grabbed a technician who was trying to care for him, Enterprise reported. Alonize also demanded to talk to the Saudi Arabian Consulate.
“That’s what he said,” LeGrice told Enterprise. “At this point, we are attempting to positively identify him.”
LeGrice was also quoted by WCVB saying that the suspected Saudi Arabian “was intoxicated.”
