ROCKY RIVER, OH (WOIO) - Police arrest a North Olmsted man for stealing $120,000 dollars from the family of a teen with cancer.
14-year-old Sabreen Haq lost her battle with brain cancer in June. Her dying wish was to have a home for her family and to have a bedroom all to herself.
Friends and family raised the money for the Haq family and they gave it to 35-year-old Hamza Abduhamdeh to buy a home.
Police say Abduhamdeh bought the house, but refused to let the family move into the home. Instead, he's accused of leasing it to someone else.
The family filed a police report.
Abduhamdeh has been charged with three counts of grand theft.
He is out on bond and will be in court next week.
