Man accused of threatening Jewish business held on $25,000 bond

AVENTURA, FLA. (WSVN) - - A man accused of threatening Jewish businesses in Aventura faced a judge for the first time.

A judge ordered Nadim Siddiqui to be placed on house arrest and ordered he be held on a $25,000 bond.

“Based on the allegations of him, essentially, targeting Jews,” said Judge Renatha Francis, “and so it’s going to be house arrest plus the bond.”

The 35-year-old is accused of targeting several Jewish establishments, including the Kosher Kingdom Supermarket in Aventura.

Aventura Police said he made anti-Semitic threats, knocked over a menorah and damaged property.

The investigation into the crime involved multiple police agencies, including the FBI.
