The Craighead County Sheriff’s Office has beefed up patrols around one man’s home after he received a threatening phone call from someone claiming to be associated with the terrorist group ISIS.

The man told Investigator Gary Etter on Wednesday he received a phone call from a “foreigner” who told him he wanted a million dollars.

According to the incident report, the caller said he was “getting money for ISIS.”

If the victim failed to comply, the caller reportedly said he would kill the man’s “whole family.”

The caller then told the man where he lived and that he has one daughter, according to the report.

According to the report, the phone number was 1-876-391-8046.
