BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Sherief Moustafa, owner and CEO of FHE Health, a mental health and addiction treatment facility in Deerfield Beach, is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail Tuesday morning without bond. He is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill.
Moustafa was arrested by Boca Raton Police Monday evening. He was booked into jail at 6:38 p.m. and remained behind bars Tuesday morning.
According to a police report reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com, it appears that Moustafa attempted to attack his step-daughter’s ex-boyfriend. From the report filed by Boca Raton Police Officer Darryl Kingman:
“(The ex-boyfriend) and a male friend were at Mizner Park earlier today where they ran into his ex-girlfriend. When the ex-girlfriend walked away, the ex-boyfriend picked up her bag and dropped it prior to leaving Mizner Park. He and his friend then left the area on their bicycles. As they were riding eastbound in the 600 block fo East Palmetto Park Road, they noticed a black Bentley driven by the (the ex-girlfriend’s) father, Sherief Abu-Moustafa, traveling at a high rate of speed towards them. The vehicle then stopped and Abu-Moustafa exited yelling at them. He then chased after them on foot as they continued riding over the bridge eastbound. As they got to the bottom of the bridge, the Bentley continued chasing them. At this point, (the ex-boyfriend) rode his bicycle northbound into the neighborhood because he was scared. While being chased by the Bentley, (the ex-boyfriend) feared for his life as he was almost struck by it.”
Others who observed — or were with — the ex-boyfriend provided similar statements, leading police to write this:
“Based upon the aforementioned information, it is clear and evident that Abu-Moustafa drove his vehicle towards both victims with the intent and apparent ability to harm them. By doing this, he created a well founded fear that victims would be harmed if struck by his vehicle.”
Moustafa himself, according to police, admitted that he attempted to scare the ex-boyfriend after his “step-daughter” was crying.
“He decided that he was going to ‘scare’ them by chasing him in his vehicle,” wrote Officer Kingman after speaking with Moustafa. “He denied intentionally driving towards them trying to strike them with his vehicle. He admitted to exiting his vehicle at one point to confront them about bullying his (step-daughter). He also denied driving recklessly or above the speed limit.”
Abu-Moustafa is now charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle. He is being held without bond in the Palm Beach County Jail.
Moustafa, according to his website at FHERehab.com, is a philanthropist who credits God with his success.
“Sherief Moustafa is the founder, owner, and CEO of FHE Health Group. For over 25 years, Mr. Moustafa has dedicated his career to the advancement of excellence in behavioral healthcare.
