Naim Rasool Mohammed 'abducted and drowned his two young sons as their mother, 22, escaped' - 23rd Aug 2011

A father drowned his two young sons after abducting them and their mother while they were walking to school on Monday, according to police.

Naim Rasool Mohammed, from Dallas, was arrested in a creek bed hours after police issued an alert saying he was suspected of abducting the two boys, aged three and five.

According to a police report, Mohammed, 32, approached the boys and their 22-year-old mother as they were walking to school and forced them into his vehicle by threatening her with a brick.

The woman eventually managed to jump from the vehicle and flag down a Dallas County constable, who notified police but did not give chase.

Yesterday Mohammed also tried but failed to take his youngest child, a one-year-old, from another location, Police Deputy Chief Craig Miller said at a news conference.

The boys' mother told officers that Mohammed had threatened to kill the children, and that he had previously threatened them and her, police said. Read More
