SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – A 22-year-old man was arrested after police said he entered his mother’s home unwanted then proceeded to assault her in front of five other children.
According to arresting documents, Ahmed Muhidin Ahmed went into his mother’s home on Mandalay Rd on Friday through the fenced gate and in the back door of the residence. The man had not lived in the home for over two years, said the documents.
The man’s mother asked him to leave and to stop using her address for work, to which he replied “I do what I want” while kicking some of her belongings on the floor.
Documents state Ahmed then went downstairs in the residence, grabbed a metal bat, and walked back upstairs.
The man’s mom and five children that were in the home ran outside and away from him, but he followed them out.
Ahmed then started hitting the fence and the mother’s car, breaking the fence and leaving marks on the vehicle.
One of the children and the man’s spouse tried to stop him from causing further damage or hitting his mother but he managed to hit his mother in the back, with the bat, three times.
The man’s brother tried stopping him but Ahmed hit him in the foot with the bat.
Ahmed then kicked his mother in the chest and punched her in the face.
When officers arrived and put Ahmed in the car, the man kicked the officer in the hand.
Ahmed gave officers false information of his identity, but they were able to identify him through their investigation.
Ahmed was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on charges of first-degree felony burglary of a dwelling and aggravated assault and misdemeanor charges of child abuse, domestic violence in the presence of a child, assault on an officer, interference with arrest, criminal mischief, failure to disclose his identity and intoxication.
Ahmed has a history of violence, including an incident in May 2018 where he threatened to harm his mother with a rock but only stopped because a witness begged him not to. A week later, Ahmed was arrested for being intoxicated and yelling at the mother and her boyfriend, in which they both said they feared Ahmed would hurt them.
