Ragheb and Nabil Sulaiman
from NBC Miami:
A man accused of assisting in the brutal beating of a customer at a Miami convenience store has fled the country, local authorities said Wednesday.

Nabil Sulaiman, 19, was charged with aggravated battery and his older brother, 24-year-old Ragheb, was charged with murder after the two allegedly attacked Akil Larue Oliver in their Quick Stop convenience store.

Nabil Sulaiman was allowed to post a $10,000 bond after the November 18 attack and used his passport to leave the country, which is in direct violation of his bail. A family attorney said the teen is likely in fear of his safety because of the racial tensions involved in the case.

The family is originally from Palestine, but it is unclear if that is where the boy has fled.
