Florida man accused of trying to recruit ISIS to attack college deans

A Florida man was arrested after allegedly trying to recruit ISIS to attack the deans of colleges he formerly attended.

Salman Rashid, 23, was arrested on charges of soliciting another person to commit a violent crime, according to a Monday release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida.

Rashid allegedly attempted to call on ISIS members to target two deans from Miami-Dade College and Broward College. 

The FBI began tracking Rashid in April 2018 after his public Facebook posts indicated support for a “violent overthrow of democracy” and institution of Islamic law, according to court documents cited in the release.

Rashid allegedly asked an undercover FBI source in May 2019 to contact ISIS members to plan a terrorist attack on his behalf. During the planning process, Rashid said an attack on a religious building or nightclub would work, the release said.
