New Mexico: Teen Wrestling Champ Tackles Wannabe Kidnapper

This is a story to bring a smile to your face.

Obviously ignoring admonitions about safe distancing, a teenage wrestling champion body-slammed and pinned a man attempting to kidnap children in what had to be a bizarre scene at a Las Cruces gas station.   Thanks to ‘meanymom’ for spotting the story from last week.

From KOB-4 News:

Deputies: Teen wrestling champ stops kidnapping of children

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — A 16-year-old wrestling champion helped stop a kidnapping and assault near Las Cruces, New Mexico, by pinning a man to the ground until deputies arrived, authorities said.

Canaan Bower won the District 3-5A championship in the 285-pound (129-kilogram) heavyweight division on Feb. 16

Mayfield High School student Canaan Bower was being lauded as a hero after controlling suspect Daniel Arroyo Beltran, 22, of Phoenix.

Dona Ana County deputies arrested Beltran Wednesday after witnesses told authorities he tried to kidnap three children at a gas station.

The mother told authorities that she got off at a bus stop with her children, ages 9, 2 and 1, and was waiting for an Uber driver to arrive when a man grabbed her 2-year-old child and demanded the woman turn over her children.

Witnesses told authorities the man punched the woman and others who tried to intervene before the woman was able to rush inside the store with her children. Witnesses said the attacker followed, continuing his demands.

“Punches were being thrown and (he could hear) screams of terror, so he jumped in his truck and went across the street,” Canaan Bower’s dad Troy Bower told the Las Cruces Sun-News. “By the time he got there, they had gone inside and so he got out of his truck and went inside.”

Daniel Arroyo Beltran doesn’t look like he weighs more than a hundred pounds wet!

Troy Bower added that his son told him he body-slammed the man and got him in a chokehold until deputies arrived.

Canaan Bower won the District 3-5A championship in the 285-pound (129-kilogram) heavyweight division on Feb. 16, and later competed at the state tournament.

There’s no indication in police reports that the man knew the mother or her children.

Beltran was charged with battery, assault, child abuse and kidnapping and remained jailed Friday.

 

Diversity is Beautiful Alert! Man from Micronesia Grabs Girl at Her Florida Home

Lucky for the 11-year-old, her Dad was home and quickly chased the intruder away from their patio door.

Steven M. Hasugulgum, 21, was arrested a short time later.

Steven M. Hasugulgum, 21, a citizen of the Federated States of Micronesia.

Of course the big question for me and others of my readers is what the heck was a creepy man from Micronesia doing wandering around Daytona Beach?

We don’t take refugees from Micronesia, well except for those rejected asylum seekers who had been placed in detention by Australia on the island of Nauru.  Surely he couldn’t have been one of those we foolishly took to America as refugees when Australia didn’t want them. Could he?

We will likely never know unless some enterprising local reporter can pull his immigration status out of the local police.

There are many articles, mostly in Florida media, about the Christmas Eve attempted kidnapping.  Thanks to reader Janet for bringing it to my attention.

Here is Fox News:

Man chased from Florida home after grabbing girl, 11, in Christmas Eve break-in attempt

A man was arrested after forcing his way into a Florida home on Christmas Eve, nearly snatching an 11-year-old girl before he was chased off by her father, authorities said.

Steven M. Hasugulgum, 21, was standing outside an Ormond Beach-area home around 6 p.m. Tuesday when the girl opened a sliding door and walked outside, the Volusia Sheriff’s Office said. Hasugulgum advanced, putting his fingers to his lips and telling her to “shh” as he forced her back inside.

The family’s security camera caught the intrusion.

 

Hasugulgum followed her and grabbed her hand, trying to pull her toward him, but the girl’s father, Derek Kloepfer, was able to chase the intruder away, deputies said.

“If I would have grabbed him, I’m sure there would have been some consequences,” Kloepfer told FOX35 Orlando.

See the Fox35 video here.

The incident was caught on home surveillance video, and deputies immediately began tracking the suspect.

But just 40 minutes after fleeing, Hasugulgum tried to break into another home in the area, deputies said.

A woman told authorities he tried to turn the knob on her front door, which was locked. She said she opened the door and saw Hasugulgum “acting erratic and holding a hammer.” He then tried to break into her SUV but was scared off after the woman hit the vehicle’s panic alarm, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies eventually arrested the 21-year-old when he reappeared near the first house less than an hour later.

Hasugulgum lives in Daytona Beach, but is a citizen of the Federated States of Micronesia, a country comprising more than 600 islands in the western Pacific Ocean, the sheriff’s office said.

If any of you learn more about this man from Micronesia and how he came to be in America in the first place, please let me know!

Maine: Four ‘new Americans’ Arrested in Case Involving Injured Naked Man

Ah, the joys of diversity come to small town New England.

Thanks to reader Steven for sending this latest crime news from Maine.

Apparently drugs are involved (see yesterday’s post) and a whole lot more.  Looks like a planned mafia-style hit!

From the Times Record:

Naked man flees captors in Casco who forced him into car trunk, shot him

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office responded early Monday to reports of shots fired and a naked man running down a road in Casco.

Deputies ultimately arrested four men and charged them with trafficking in scheduled drugs. Additional charges are likely as the investigation continues.

The four men arrested are: Ajoung M. Malual, 22, of Westbrook; Mahdi B. Ali, 23, of Boston; Noh Y. Okubazghi, 20, of Boston; and Samson S. Samson, 22, of Minneapolis.

Deputies responded to the 300 block of Tenney Hill Road at 1:30 a.m. Monday after receiving reports of gunshots fired, and then of a man running down the road naked, according to a news release.

They located the naked man, who had been shot and injured. He told police he had been taken at gunpoint from his home in Naples, put into the trunk of a car, and driven to a rural area in Casco and told to strip naked.

He told the deputies that he feared for his life and began running through the woods while shots were fired at him.

[….]

The man who was shot is 39 years old but was not identified by law enforcement. He was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston and treated for gunshot wounds. He was in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries, but Capt. Donald Goulet of the sheriff’s office declined to talk about the injuries.

Deputies later stopped a vehicle in Windham that matched the victim’s description of the car. The four men inside were detained and later arrested on drug trafficking charges after deputies searched them and the car. Goulet would not say what was found during the search.

The four men arrested are: Ajoung M. Malual, 22, of Westbrook; Mahdi B. Ali, 23, of Boston; Noh Y. Okubazghi, 20, of Boston; and Samson S. Samson, 22, of Minneapolis.

As usual, no mention is made of the immigration status of the four Africans.

Noel, MO Somali National Still on the Loose, ID of Girlfriend Confirmed

I was just running through many of my murder cases that I’ve been following to see if there is any news for me to share (because these cases that don’t fit the politically correct narrative about ‘new Americans’ tend to disappear).

Muhamad- Noel MO
Fugitive! Wanted!

I’m not seeing anything new on the Kenyan Killer (Billy Chemirmir) or the Nigerian charged in the murder of a college coed in Utah, but there is a fresh AP story on the still missing Somali (a former meatpacker)—Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed—wanted for questioning after allegedly abducting his dead girlfriend’s children.

The children were found safe, but he is still on the run.

Sheriff: New evidence confirms ID of Missouri woman’s body

PINEVILLE, Mo. (AP) —
Authorities say dental records and a tattoo support an earlier tentative identification of a body found on a hillside in southwest Missouri.

McDonald County Sheriff Michael Hall said Monday the new evidence suggests the body found July 29 near Noel is that of 25-year-old Jessica McCormack, of Noel. Investigators believe she was stuffed into a suitcase that rolled down a hill after being thrown from a moving vehicle.

Hall tentatively identified the body in August. The Joplin Globe reports Hall said Monday dental records and a tattoo on the body’s left wrist made authorities confident the body was McDonald.

Her boyfriend, 37-year-old Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed is charged with kidnapping but is a fugitive. Investigators believe he took McCormack’s three daughters to Iowa and left them with a friend before disappearing.

He is on the run from federal charges for the kidnapping, see the US Justice Department press release from one month ago today.

I’m betting he is already out of the country!

Utah: Nigerian Arrested for Murder Faces Additional Charges

This is an update on the dreadful case in Utah where a Nigerian, who should not have been in the country, allegedly kidnapped, killed and then attempted to burn the body of a college coed, faces new charges.

From the Salt Lake Tribune,

Suspect in slaying of Utah student MacKenzie Lueck charged with kidnapping, sexually abusing another woman

 

The man accused of killing MacKenzie Lueck, a 23-year-old University of Utah student, has been charged with four new felony counts of kidnapping and sexually abusing another woman in March 2018.

Ayoola-Ajayi-composite with house
Ayoola Ajayi’s little house of horrors….

This is the second set of new charges filed against 31-year-old Ayoola Ajayi since he was booked into jail in connection with Lueck’s alleged murder. Last week, prosecutors charged Ajayi with 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after they found numerous pornographic photos of children on his computer.

The charges filed Tuesday in Utah’s 3rd District Court allege he abused a woman he met on an unspecified dating app. Ajayi invited the woman to his home to cook her dinner on March 10, 2018, and the charges allege that while they watched TV on his couch, he started “intensely” kissing her and trying to touch her inappropriately and forcefully.

When the woman tried to get away, Ajayi allegedly pinned her down and bit her at least three times, “causing her significant pain, and left bruising and bite marks,” the charges said. He is now facing a first-degree felony charge of aggravated kidnapping and three counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.

Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill said the woman came to law enforcement with these allegations after Lueck’s death. The delayed report “is understandable because many victims of sexual trauma don’t always disclose,” Gill said.

Presumably this woman is on her knees every day thanking God she didn’t suffer the same fate as poor Mackenzie.

Too bad she didn’t come forward immediately after the incident and maybe the creep would have been removed from the country (wishful thinking on my part because the authorities wouldn’t have booted him for a little sexual abuse!).

But, heck, maybe they would have found the child porn in his home, if the woman had come forward earlier.

Gill also declined to say whether anyone else has come forward with new allegations against Ajayi.

More here.

I wonder how many more women abused by the Nigerian (who should have been deported long ago) are out there?

Although my reach is limited, I’m trying to keep some of the most dreadful murder cases involving immigrants in the national spotlight.

Because they don’t fit the politically correct narrative the national media spews out every day, it is important for us to keep instructive cases like this one in front of as many Americans as possible.
