FBI and local police officers arrested a 28-year-old man at his residence in North Bay Village, South Florida, for launching racist threats over the Internet between 2016 and 2017, local media reported today.

Rory McCormack-Yong was arrested this week and faces up to 25 years in prison for uttering threats to Christians, Jews and Muslims under user Yazid Saddam on Twitter and Instagram, according to Local10 channel.

In a Facebook post, McCormack-Yong is observed firing a gun at the cry of “Takbir, Allahu akbar”.

His neighbors in the quiet town described him as a “disturbed” and “erratic” man.
