A man staying in a Mesa motel room was threatened by an intruder wielding a machete. 

Mesa police report that on October 13, a man later identified as 37-year-old Anas Ali Muraweh, entered a motel room near Recker Road and Main Street. 

Muraweh allegedly threatened the guest inside the room, waving the sheathed machete over his head and saying, "You [messed] with the wrong guy."

The guest ran out of the motel room and contacted the police.
