MOORHEAD – A 39-year-old Moorhead man is facing charges after police say he tried to run over his family in a car following a dispute with his wife Wednesday.

According to documents filed Thursday in Clay County District Court, Hisham Fazil Ali allegedly got in a fight with his wife and told her and their four children to leave the house on Wednesday night.

Ali’s wife told police that she and the children started crossing a field in search of help when Ali allegedly got into the family’s Chrysler Pacifica and drove toward them, documents state.

His wife told police Ali was within several feet of the family and going between 50 and 100 mph before he turned away.

Ali is charged with five counts of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and two counts of making terroristic threats, all felonies.
