Police say KC man made threats against school. Suspect in Clay also facing Platte County charges
Kansas City man who psychiatrists describe in court documents as “deadly” and “a scary psychotic” is accused of making a terrorist threat against the Oak Hill Day School in Gladstone.
It all started with a concerned mother’s call to 9-1-1 urging law enforcement to conduct a welfare check on her son, Brandon Naghshineh, age 34. His suspicious behavior and indecent comments about his son’s school had apparently raised some red flags, prompting her to call authorities.
During a welfare check on Tuesday, Nov. 12, a law enforcement officer saw disturbing pictures and writings about active school shooter events, like Sandy Hook, posted against the walls, state court documents. Based upon what he observed inside the home and verbal complaints from those close to Naghshineh, officers brought him to the North Kansas City Hospital to undergo a behavioral health assessment.
According to court documents, Naghshineh has been making frequent trips to Oak Hill Day School while disguised in a black hoodie and sunglasses. Authorities say Naghshineh allegedly parks several blocks away and enters the school using his assigned code issued to each parent.
Video surveillance shows him deliberately walking the halls on four recent occasions, authorities say.
During one incident, he is seen carrying a black backpack and walking the outside perimeter while peering into windows, states court documents.
Naghshineh allegedly told his mother the school’s security was “lax,” and warned her to keep his son home from school on Wednesday, Nov. 13, claiming “a storm was coming.”
When school authorities attempted to question Naghshineh about his frequent visits, he allegedly became agitated and declined to answer.
According to a professional psychiatrist, Naghshineh is a true “psychopath and psychotic,” states court documents. Mental health professionals described him as “deadly” and claim he has “delusions about his ex-girlfriend’s death,” according to court documents.
The Clay County Prosecutor’s Office charged Naghshineh of Kansas City with making a terrorist threat against Oak Hill Day School.
This is Naghshineh’s second arrest this year. In January, court documents reveal Naghshineh kicked in a garage door to gain unlawful entry into a residence in Platte County.
According to court documents in the Platte County case, the victim called 9-1-1 to report a prowler, who he believed came to his home to evoke serious bodily harm. A witness told authorities he previously worked with Naghshineh and, for some reason, he believes he is still owed money. Naghshineh continues to harass the victim by sending threatening text messages, states court documents.
Eventually the verbal threats escalated into an alleged incident at the victim’s home. Court documents say Naghshineh kicked in the victim’s garage door to gain access into the home. But when the residential security alarm system started to sound, Naghshineh got spooked and quickly fled the scene, authorities say.
Video surveillance places Naghshineh and his 2019 Toyota Tundra at the scene on the incident, according to court documents.
Police caught up with Naghshineh at his residence in the 7000 block of N. Denver Avenue later that day. While in custody, Naghshineh told police he was abused his entire life, which caused him to “become addicted to prescription and illicit drugs.”
He claims he kicked in the garage door to protect a family member and confront another.
The Platte County Prosecutor’s Office has charged Naghshineh with burglary and harassment.
As of Tuesday, Naghshineh remained in custody inside the Platte County Detention Center on a $7,500 bond on the Platte County charges.
