Man arrested for allegedly threatening worshipers at Phoenix mosque

A man was arrested for allegedly intimidating and threatening worshippers at a mosque in Phoenix.

The Phoenix Police Department on Saturday night arrested Noel Thomas Becht on charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct and threatening and intimidating, according to The Associated Press. Becht remained in custody at the Maricopa County Jail as of Monday.

Becht initially entered the United Islamic Center Saturday evening around 7 p.m. He asked about the Muslim religion and requested to sit in on a prayer service, police say.

He then reportedly started wandering around the mosque and entering rooms and areas he should not have been. He also asked worshippers about regular service times held at the mosque.
