Criminal proceedings against a Seattle man accused of trying to run over two Jewish men outside a Los Angeles synagogue have been suspended amid questions about his mental competency, officials said.

During a bail review hearing Friday morning, public defender David Canas questioned whether 32-year-old Mohamed Abdi Mohamed was competent to stand trial for two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

A mental competency hearing has been scheduled for Dec. 14, according to Paul Eakins, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Canas did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mohamed was arrested Nov. 23 after police say he shouted anti-Semitic slurs toward a crowd of worshippers exiting Congregation Bais Yeshuda in Hancock Park. Investigators said Mohamed tried to run down two men with his car before speeding away and crashing.

He is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.

More: Updated Report on Local Hate Crimes Sough by Los Angeles City Council

A motion passed by the Los Angeles City Council asking the police department for a report on hate crimes should help shed light on the rise in hate-related incidents, including a recent incident when a Seattle resident allegedly tried to run over two men outside a synagogue, a staff member of a city councilman said Thursday.

“We unfortunately had a hate crime here in our district, and there’s been an increase in hate crimes around the country, so I think we wanted to find out what the updated numbers were and then get the department’s take on what we’re doing about the issue and work with us on more ways to help on this issue,” Jeff Ebenstein, policy director for City Councilman Paul Koretz, told City News Service.

Mohamed Abdi Mohamed, 32, is expected to undergo an evaluation to determine if he is competent to stand trial on two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon — a vehicle — and a hate crime allegation stemming from an alleged confrontation near La Brea and Oakwood Avenues on Nov. 23

LAPD Chief Michel Moore said two men had just left a synagogue in the 300 block of La Brea Avenue and were walking toward Oakwood Avenue when Mohamed allegedly tried to run them over. He was arrested by Los Angeles police that night.

“He’s yelling out hateful remarks regarding Jewish heritage and regarding these people of faith,” the police chief said. “They watch him as he then turns his vehicle directly at them.”

If convicted as charged, Mohamed could face up to eight years and eight months in state prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

  1. OBAMACAIR finally transparent ,the audacity of hope for a radical transformation of America. The hope and change Sharia if Allah will’s it.OK no more insolent and blasphemy. This is the serious and sad state of affairs facing our nation and the world. The peoples republic of California is not the only state and the judicial branch of government is only one area. Even the insurgents on the southern border are represented by public enemy number one CAIR is Hamas,the” outreach,interfaith and Islamiphobe” programs are creeping deeper into the hearts and minds in” the land of the infield”

    • That illegal President Obama went all out for 8 years to destroy the country. Hillary would of continued the work. That’s why they so upset. They never got to complete the task. Overturn his Presidency & remove all refugees etc he brought in and Bill Clinton for that matter who got this ball
      Rolling. These people are traitors to this country.

  2. Of course he has mental issues! Anyone that wants to kill for his religion(cult) is whacked! They are all whacked to some point, can’t trust any of them!

  3. Seems Islam is a condition that requires hate and assault. I can’t see that as being a mental condition, rather, a mental state.

    • Well that explains why the left lobe them. They too are filled with hatered and anger. Seems a match made in heaven but I’d think it’s wiser to send our Dems to their countries than to continue to allow this influx of criminals into a country which isn’t even an Islamic country ( well when last I checked ) no more Muslims to be allowed in. They have countries with space & financial stability to take them in, if they so desperately need to be removed from their country. Africa wanted the Africans to control & rule Africa. They got their wish & now no one wants to live there. They made their beds they need to be left to sleep in them.

  4. U.S. should not allow Muslims entrance into our Country. Under Quran, it allows them to lie to heathens, which cover all muslim-Islamics. IF vetted, they can freely lie. These are a people that will not truefully declare allegiance to U.S. They’re come to overtake the country. They will NOT obey the laws of our land. First act is to establish their Sharia Court. Sharia laws violates our Laws and doesn’t recognize American law.. How I wish Obama never came here. They are entrenched here. It’s nothing for them to rape. It’s part of populatIng their people. Check statistics in Europe, wherever they settle rapes occur, their population increases. Our own “news medias” hide as much as they can.

  5. Why are they bringing in mentally unstable people and endangering their own citizens safety ? Why are these criminals not doing time & then be deported which is the norm ? Why would anyone want to bring refugees in from Africa . The entire continent is a disaster because criminals are plentiful there. Send them back.
    This is America the land of the free & freedom of speech. Shari Law has no place in this country. Send them to Islamic countries if you want to save America. And stop bringing them in.

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
