New Info on Ex-Dover Mall Kiosk Operator & Alleged ISIS Sympathizer

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (WBOC) - WBOC is learning new information about Abror Habibov. He is the man who police say recently lived and work in Dover and is now charged with trying to help two associates get to Syria to join the Islamic State.

According to police, Habibov used to work at the Dover mall. They say he operated a cell phone repair kiosk.

Kira Hummel said she used to work at a sports collectible kiosk near that cell phone repair kiosk.

"I was just like amazed, because it was happening right where I used to live and where I still have friends living," she told WBOC. "And it kind of freaked me out, and it made me worry a little more about where I'm going to get my phone fixed."

Hummel said she noticed some odd things at the nearby kiosk but nothing seriously concerning.

"There was nothing to really think like this could be something really bad," she said. "Crazy things happen out of nowhere when you least expect it."

"Luke" says he had his phone fixed at the kiosk last year, and it has been acting oddly ever since.

"I'm concerned that things got downloaded off my phone," he said.

According to court documents, Habibov lived in an apartment at Dover Country Club on the town's west side. The complex sued him for unpaid rent in August.

According to the Associated Press, that was right around the time authorities say Habibov and two other men began conspiring to help ISIS.

Those same court records appear to show Habibov had left Dover. Mail from the court was listed as undeliverable with no forwarding address.

Dover Mall representatives told WBOC Thursday they had no comment on all this.

Habibov was arrested in Florida. His two alleged associates were arrested in New York City. All three are currently being held without bail and could face up to 15 years in prison.
