Nut charged in chaotic break-in at Ocasio-Cortez’s marketing campaign places of work


A D.C. man is dealing with a collection of expenses after barricading himself in a utility closest in a Queens constructing that’s residence to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s marketing campaign, cops mentioned Sunday.

Douala Hashi, 31, allegedly argued with safety on the bottom flooring of the Jackson Heights constructing simply earlier than 5 p.m. Saturday and ran as much as the third flooring, the place he refused to go away, based on police.

When cops arrived at 74-09 37th Ave., Hashi sprayed the officers with a fireplace extinguisher, making a “cloud situation,” and ran right into a utility closest holding a damaged bottle, the NYPD mentioned.

Hashi was taken to Elmhurst Hospital for psychiatric analysis and charged Sunday with menacing, three counts of felony mischief and two counts of trespassing.

It was first reported Saturday that Hashi had damaged into AOC’s places of work, however the NYPD mentioned Sunday, the freshman consultant’s places of work have been “by no means breached.”

AOC was in Washington when the occasion unfolded.
