Deputies: Man arrested for making threatening calls to Central Florida mosque

OSCEOLA COUNTY, FL - The Osceola County Sheriffs Office announced on Sunday that a man has been arrested for allegedly making threatening calls to a mosque in Central Florida.

Threatening calls were made to the American Muslim Leadership Center located on W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway on Wednesday, the Osceola County Sheriffs Office said. The threats were said to have been made on the phone and the suspect, identified as Jaran Ali Rasanjani Tyrell, expressed his hatred and disdain for the Muslim community and certain individuals in that community. He specifically left at least two profanity-laced messages, talking about a man who he believed "shot up Orlando" and asked "you that Muslim, right? You that terrorist, right?" before going into a tirade.

 
The American Muslim Leadership Council Center called out the Osceola County Sheriffs Office for not taking the threats seriously enough, stating that the sheriff "failed the American Muslim community once again".

Since then, the Osceola County Sheriffs Office announced that they increased patrols and began routine checks of all the mosques in the county. They later announced that they were able to arrest Tyrell for Aggravated Stalking/Evidencing Prejudice While Committing Offense on Saturday.
