It happened in an upscale Minneapolis neighborhood near Lake Calhoun last week. A mob of about 20 to 30 young Somalian refugee men came parading through the neighborhood about 9:30 Monday morning, making terroristic threats.
The men stopped in front of one woman’s house, and the ugly comments turned to threats. “They were screaming at the house that they were going to kidnap you and they were going to rape you,” one Minneapolis resident told ABC5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. “It was a very traumatizing experience.”
The neighbors told the news media on Thursday that the Somali men have been harassing them throughout the week, but Monday was the most violent and scary.
They reported the men were driving onto the sidewalk and lawns, shooting off bottle rockets and screaming. One resident said, “The entire neighborhood is up in arms.”
