Man who stopped robbery in court for tax fraud, pleads not guilty
Milwaukee -- He was a local hero in the eyes of many Milwaukeeans.
Today, the man who pulled a gun and stopped a grocery store robbery appears in court, but not for that incident.
Nazir Al-Mujaahid faces six counts related to income tax fraud. He entered a not guilty plea. The court bound him over for trial.
It was January of 2012 when we first heard about this man.
He was in a north side Aldi's store when two men tried to hold up the place.
Al-Mujaahid was allegedly carrying a gun and he pulled it out and fired, injuring one of the would-be robbers.
He was later cleared of any wrong-doing.
If convicted on these tax fraud charges, he could go to prison for up to 40 years. He will be back in court in early October.
