A Daytona Beach Shores man unhappy insurance would no longer pay for adjustment of his dentures wanted his dentist dead, saying he would step on her with his shoe as she died, police said.
Records show Moussa Assi, 64, was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on Wednesday on charges of threats or extortion. He was in jail Thursday on $5,000 bail.
Assi threatened to kill dentist Jenna Obeng if she did not pay him double what was paid to her by insurance company Humana, a police report states.
“On Oct. 6, I will end her life. I will step on her with my shoe while she is dying,” Assi said on a voicemail message to the dentist, the report states.
In one call, Assi also said “I hope your entire family dies of coronavirus,” according to a police report.
Obeng contacted police Tuesday, saying Assi called and said he was on his way to Dental USA Family Dentistry at 1540 Cornerstone Blvd. in Daytona, investigators said.
Police said Assi called Obeng up to 10 times a day, accusing her of stealing money from the insurance company and threatening her life and that of her family, a report states.
