Police: Man who left unattended Quran in Boston wanted in DC

BOSTON (AP) - A man police say left a copy of the Quran on the steps of a state government building in Boston is also wanted in Washington for allegedly making threats at Reagan National Airport and assaulting a police officer.

Aziz Rehman Osmani is scheduled to be arraigned in Boston on Tuesday on a fugitive from justice charge.

Police say the 22-year-old Osmani got into an argument at a jewelry store on Monday after refusing to return jewelry he was inspecting.

He left the area and was seen on surveillance video leaving a suspicious package outside the government building.

It turned out to be the Muslim holy book. He was arrested later Monday after allegedly causing a disturbance at a shelter. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.
