Shocking moment ‘landlord lunges at tenant with CIRCULAR SAW after ripping through front door’ in row over unpaid rent
THIS is the shocking moment a landlord appears to lunge at his tenant with a circular saw after ripping through the front door in a rent row.
A terrified Muhammed Raheel captured the crazed moment on Monday lunchtime.
The surgeon started filming from inside his flat in Galway, Ireland, when his landlord started cutting through the door with the power tool.
Unlocking his home to see what madness was happening outside, Muhammed can be heard telling the man “stay back I’m going to call the police”.
The dad-of-two was then forced to take cover when his landlord launched the saw at him as it whirled around.
Pleading for him to stop, Muhammed shouted: “You cannot do this, please.”
Muhammed said if his wife had not helped pull him back in that moment, “anything could have happened”.
He said: “I have been up all night with my wife and our daughters, 1 and 3, awake with worry that he would return with another weapon.”
The horrifying incident, where the landlord can be heard threatening “no matter where you go in this life I will follow you”, is allegedly over unpaid rent.
Muhammed told The Journal his payments had been bouncing back when he tried transferring them across.
However, claims he kept the money to one side for when the landlord contacted him.
He said: “I kept trying every month and put the money aside so I would have it there when he got in touch.
“I didn’t hear from him for months. Then, on March 28, my wife called me from home and said I had to come right away, because someone was drilling outside.”
Muhammed said he had to rush out of the operating room to head home where he found the locks being changed.
Nearly one month on, the landlord took matters into his own hands inflicting the horrifying ordeal on the Raheel family.
Muhammed said the “little” response he got from cops was “painful” and left him fearing for his family’s safety.
He added: “I felt like my family and I were offered no protection, and we were deeply worried he would come back.”
The local force said: “Enquiries are ongoing at this time.”
