Man wanted in connection with theft of assault rifle


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A man with a history of crimes in the Eau Claire area is now wanted in connection with the theft of an assault rifle.

Rafiq McDonald is charged with stealing the AR 15 rifle and two other guns. He allegedly bragged to an acquaintance that he stole them  from a car parked at a home on Golf Road in Eau Claire last November.

The guns were confiscated during a SWAT team raid at McDonald's apartment in Menomonie last month but he was not there.

McDondald is also suspected in a counterfeit money investigation. In 2010 he was arrested in Eau Claire for allegedly possessing an apparent homemade hand grenade. That same year he was convicted in a crash that injured one person.
