A $100,000 cash bond was set Thursday for Mohammad T. Alnabulsi, who was returned to the county on an outstanding arrest warrant.
Alnabulsi faces felony counts of stalking and burglary, which carry a total fine of $35,000 and 16 years in prison. The amended complaint adds nine misdemeanor charges of using a computer to make a threat, which each carry a $1,000 fine and 90 days in county jail.
According to the original criminal complaint:
A woman told a Mount Pleasant police officer that she had been involved in a relationship with the defendant from November 2016 to May 2018. While they were together, he had been abusive and was arrested for domestic abuse against her.
Since they broke up, the woman stated the defendant moved to Connecticut. From May of this year, he had sent her hundreds of text messages and left more than 100 voicemails on her phone.
On June 1, the defendant allegedly sent the woman a text message that said, “tonight, my flight is booked,” which gave the woman the impression he was going to show up. She said she tried to block the number, but he used many different phone applications and created different numbers.
Police contacted Alnabulsi and told him to stop contacting her.
Around Sept. 11, the victim stated that Alnabulsi sent a group text to her father, mother, sister, brother, and ex-boyfriend that included nude photographs of her that were taken when they were together. The texts ranged from apologetic and expressing love for her to insulting and threatening sexual acts.
At approximately 7:45 a.m. Sept. 24, the woman called 911 and stated she came home, sat down and Alnabulsi tapped her on the shoulder. She said she and her mother screamed at him to get out. She thought he may have walked in behind her. Alnabulsi then fled the residence.
Alnabulsi is due back in court Oct. 11 for a 9 a.m. preliminary hearing.
