Sattar Ali says he’s questioning moving his family from Dearbornback to Wichita after he, his wife, and daughter were all in handcuffs when he tried to deposit a check in the bank.
According to KAKE-TV in Wichita The Ali family recently sold their Dearborn home and moved to Wichita, Kansas, so the patriarchcould finish his degree and they could be closer to his son at Wichita State.
Sattar Ali took his check for $151,000 to the bank so he could deposit it until they could buy a place. He told KAKE that he had all the documents necessary.
Ali said he wasn’t trying to cash the check, just deposit it.
“I told them I don’t need it until I find a house. So keep the check with you, verify, take your time,” he told the TV station. “Simply we were just going there to deposit a check. We were not asking for money.”
Just a few minutes after he arrived, the police showed up.
“I was talking to them for less than five minutes and I found the police behind me, handcuffed me, confiscated everything and took me outside.”
His wife Hadil and their 15 year old daughter Hawra were waiting in the car outside the bank – both were also arrested. All three were taken to police headquarter for questioning and were held for three hours.
