    A man police say left a copy of the Quran on the steps of a state government building in Boston is also wanted in Washington for allegedly making threats at Reagan National Airport and assaulting a police officer.

                   Aziz Rehman Osmani is scheduled to be arraigned in Boston on Tuesday on a fugitive from justice charge.
                   Police say the 22-year-old Osmani got into an argument at a jewelry store on Monday after refusing to return jewelry he was inspecting. He left the area and was seen on surveillance video leaving a suspicious package outside the government building. It turned out to be the Muslim holy book.
                   He was arrested later Monday after allegedly causing a disturbance at a shelter.
                   It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.
