Prisoner has sex with cellmate’s Quran and damages book with his bodily fluidsBy William Martin 12:11 PM December 5, 2017
A prisoner became angry after his cellmate grabbed his Quran and had sex with it, according to police in North Carolina.
Gaston County police said that 35-year-old Jonathan Ross Compton was charged after being accused of damaging the Quran of his fellow inmate, 39-year-old Abdur Abdulkhafid.
Compton has been charged with ethnic intimidation.
Compton remained in the Gaston County Jail and his bail has been raised to $15,000.
According to the police investigation, Compton was originally arrested for violating a domestic violence protection order and simple assault.
When Compton failed to appear in court for a scheduled hearing, he was booked into the Gaston County Jail on a charge of failing to appear.
On Friday, at around 2:00 a.m., he grabbed the Quran belonging to Abdulkhafid, who was locked up in the same prison cell.
Compton then began having sex with the book and deposited his bodily fluids on the pages.
Compton then hurled racial and homophobic slurs towards Abdulkhafid.
