A man with the name Jihad allegedly threatened jihad on police officers in El Monte, California on Tuesday.

Jihad Mufaddi Khalaf Haddadin, 52, reportedly walked up to the local police station on Valley Boulevard and told cops through an intercom he had a bomb.

When several officers came out to confront the man, he allegedly dropped a black backpack on the ground outside of the station.

Police evacuated the building and sent a robot to detonate the bag. The backpack was determined to contain only clothing, papers, an umbrella, and other personal items.

Cops say the man used the word ‘jihad’ several times.
