BURNSVILLE, Minn. (AP) — A Burnsville store clerk is accused of threatening a man with a baseball bat after the man asked if he could fill up his water bottle.

Forty-seven-year-old Mahmoud Ahmed Alsharif of Rosemount is charged with terroristic threats.

According to the complant, the man, his girlfriend and her 4-year-old son entered Super Gas USA last Wednesday. Alsharif told the man that the bathroom and faucet were only for customers.

The woman says Asharif also was angry that the boy had used the bathroom. She says the clerk rejected her attempt to buy juice.

Alsharif allegedly raised his hand in the shape of a gun and said, "I'm going to shoot you in the head," then grabbed a bat and followed the three out of the store.

Alsharif told police he was upset because the three wanted to use the bathroom but were not customers.
