RANCHO CUCAMONGA: Sheriff’s bean bag shotgun halts sword attack
A sword-wielding 33-year-old Rancho Cucamonga man charged deputies while hollering “Allah Akbar,” sheriff’s officials say, until the deputies halted him with a blast from a bean bag shotgun.
Montasir Ishag was arrested at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, along the 9400 block of Glenaire Court and booked for investigation of attempted murder of a police officer, jail records show. His bail is $1 million.
Deputies were summoned to the house at 1:26 p.m. by a caller who said his son was under the influence of meth and was having a bi-polar episode, sheriff’s officials said in a written statement.
The caller also said his son had a sword in his bedroom and feared for his safety.
“When deputies entered the front door, … Ishag charged the deputies with a sword, while yelling ‘Allah Akbar,’” according to the statement. “Deputies used a less than lethal shotgun.”
Ishag was taken to San Antonio Community Hospital for treatment of his injuries before being booked.
