Man accused of ramming restaurant with car in south Fargo

FARGO – A 40-year-old man was arrested here after witnesses said he rammed his car into a restaurant Friday afternoon.

Witnesses said that around 3 p.m., the man repeatedly drove his car into Habib Cuisine, a restaurant located in the strip mall on the corner of 13th Avenue South and 23rd Street.

The crash broke the entry of the restaurant and shattered windows.

No one inside was seriously injured.

When an employee from nearby O’Reilly’s, an auto parts store on 13th Avenue, went to take pictures and check on the man, the employee said the man tried to ram him with his car several times and threatened to kill him.

Ahmed Sheikhabu, 40, is being held in the Cass County Jail pending possible charges of drunken driving, criminal mischief and aggravated reckless endangerment.
