    Virginia man charged with threats at mosque, ramming cars

    Police say a man threatened to kill people at a mosque in northern Virginia and rammed his car into other vehicles outside.
    Fairfax County Police say in a news release that 22-year-old Zulqarnain Khan faces five felony counts and four misdemeanors after he was arrested Sunday night at the Masjid Noor Mosque in Springfield. The felony charges include counts of abduction, attempted malicious wounding and destruction of property.
    Police say Khan was threatening to kill people he encountered, prevented some people from entering and forced others to leave. The news release says he rammed three cars, including one that was occupied. No one was injured.
    Khan was being held Monday without bond.
    It wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer, and a phone number for him rang disconnected.
