Man breaks into AOC’s offices in NYC, sprays cops with fire extinguisher

An unhinged trespasser broke into the empty Queens campaign offices of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday, and barricaded himself into a closet before cops hauled him out.

The man, whose name was not released by police, was emotionally disturbed, police said.

‘Sperminator’ strikes again: Donor’s 50th baby mama is homeless 18-year-old from Harlem

The Sperminator strikes again — this time donating his seed to an 18-year-old who lives in an East Harlem shelter. Her daughter, due July 12, will make it number 50 for the serial sperm donor.

Ari Nagel, the 43-year-old CUNY math professor who donates his sperm to women across the globe for free, has racked up serious spawn this past year: 15 babies since last Father’s Day, bringing the grand total to 48. One woman is due to give birth in early July, followed by Kaienja Garrick, who lives in the East River Family Center, a family shelter with a shared bathroom and kitchen.

“I think it’s a nice shelter. It’s probably nicer than my apartment,” Nagel told The Post, adding that he didn’t know how old Garrick was when she reached out to him last August. “I never asked her age — I try to help whoever asks,” he said. “I think Kai is more mature than I was at her age after everything she has been through.”

MEN SEEING DRASTIC DROP IN SPERM COUNT, STUDY CLAIMS

Garrick has been on her own for about two years after leaving her mother’s Jamaica, Queens, home because “we fought a lot.” Without other family nearby (her father lives in Georgia), Garrick, who is unemployed, ­entered the shelter system.

Last August, a month after her 18th birthday, she decided to try to get pregnant.

“I knew if I could raise my little sister, I can raise my own baby,” she said of her 7-year-old sibling. “I’ve been taking care of her since she was born.”

Kaienja and her girlfriend of three years, Dee Slobert, ruled out going to a clinic, chalking it up to hassle and expense. (Slobert, 21, lives in a different Manhattan shelter with her mother and brother.)

That’s when Garrick did an online search for “free sperm donation” and found Nagel.

“I didn’t know what a ‘Sperminator’ is,” she said. But after a few Facebook exchanges, Garrick knew he was the one.

“He didn’t ask about anything,” she said. “ It’s good not to ask a lot of questions — it’s a woman’s choice.”

They met up in Manhattan Beach last fall, where Nagel donated into a cup on the spot. Two weeks later, Garrick knew she was going to be a mom.

Last month, several members of Nagel’s “mom squad” — women who have given birth thanks to him — showed up at Garrick’s baby shower with diapers, clothes and cash.

“They were great and I’m so grateful,” said Garrick, adding that Nagel, who also attended, brought a Google Home electronic device for reading to the baby.

(Garrick didn’t get to meet all the women, however: She was hours late to the party, as she was getting her hair done, and some of the guests left before she arrived. Nagel cracked to Garrick’s father: “She’s only 18, you have to give her a break.”)

Garrick admitted it’s a bit much to process the multitudes of half-siblings her child will have.

“[Nagel] has so many kids, you don’t know who the siblings could be,” she said.

When her daughter eventually starts dating, she plans to inquire about the person’s family background — to make sure they’re not a relative.

She and Slobert have a name picked out for their daughter: Kaidee, a hybrid of their names.

Garrick hopes to soon score an apartment voucher through her caseworker for her, Kaidee and Slobert, who has plans to finish high school and one day work in engineering. (Slobert is currently unemployed and not enrolled in any school programs.)

Garrick said she will receive her own high-school diploma later this month through the Department of Education’s Pathways to Graduation program.

Nagel is confident Garrick will be a good mom. “My 18 was different than hers — people mature at different ages, but better too young than too old,” he said, noting that infertility increases with age.

And Garrick brushes off skeptics, including her own mother, who don’t approve of her having a baby. “It’s not their decision — it’s mine,” she said.

She added that, unlike the five moms who have sued Nagel, Garrick has no plans to ask him for child support.

“I think it’s sad — it’s not like he charges us [for his sperm],” she said. “If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be blessed to have a child. It’s hard to find people like that. Nothing’s free in this world.”

Meanwhile, the Sperminator continues spreading the love. Last week, he made sperm donations in Latvia and Thailand — where, according to Nagel, a 39-year-old Buddhist virgin paid for him to visit.

Taking stock of his offspring, he said: “It would be crazy if I was raising them on my own, but there are over 50 amazing, loving moms that are doing a great job raising the children.

“Although I struggle financially, I feel rich with joy and love and am so blessed to be a part of so many wonderful families.”

The Latest: Damaged oil tanker arrives off UAE coast

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-30d24d52979a4e1ab93fc84fbd39459e The Latest: Damaged oil tanker arrives off UAE coast fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world fnc/world fnc Dubai (United Arab Emirates) b40692bd-c25c-57d0-89f1-39efeb1d564b Associated Press article

The Latest on developments in the Persian Gulf (all times local):

10:45 a.m.

The Norwegian-owned oil tanker Front Altair, which caught fire after being apparently attacked last week in the Gulf of Oman, has arrived off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.

The ship’s position was some 20 miles off the coast of the Emirati port city of Khorfakkan on Sunday.

The Front Altair caught fire after the attack Thursday, sending a thick cloud of black smoke visible even by satellite from space.

On Saturday, Associated Press journalists saw the crew members of Front Altair after their Iran Air flight from Bandar Abbas, Iran, landed at Dubai International Airport.

The U.S. has blamed Iran for what it described as an attack with limpet mines on the two tankers. Tehran rejects the allegation, instead accusing the U.S. under President Donald Trump of pursuing an “Iranophobic” campaign against it.

___

10:35 a.m.

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman says the kingdom isn’t seeking war in the region, but won’t hesitate to deal with any threats to its people and vital interests.

In his first public remarks since attacks last month on oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, the powerful Saudi prince accused Iran of using militias to destabilize the region.

He said the attacks days earlier on vessels in the Gulf of Oman, as well as on an oil pipeline in Saudi Arabia and a civilian airport in the kingdom’s southern city of Abha, “confirm the importance of our demands of the international community to take a decisive stance” against Iran’s behavior.

He made the remarks in an interview published Sunday by the pan-Arabic newspaper Asharq al-Awsat.

___

7 a.m.

Yemen’s Houthi rebels say they’ve launched a new drone attack against Saudi Arabia. The kingdom says it shot down one Houthi drone.

The Houthi’s Al-Masirah satellite news channel announced the attack late Saturday night. Yahia al-Sarie, a Houthi spokesman, said their drones targeted airports in Jizan and Abha in Saudi Arabia.

Early Sunday, the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen said it shot down a drone near the Abha regional airport.

A statement from spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki did not address the Houthi claim regarding a drone attack on Jizan.

The Houthis say they launched a cruise missile that struck the Abha airport Wednesday. Saudi Arabia says that attack wounded 26 people.

Yankees add AL home run leader Edwin Encarnación after trade with Mariners

The New York Yankees acquired AL home run leader Edwin Encarnación in a trade with the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night, adding another feared slugger to what could be baseball’s most powerful lineup when Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton return from injuries.

The Yankees also got cash in the deal while sending 19-year-old minor league pitcher Juan Then to Seattle. Encarnación is making $20 million this season.

Speaking before the trade was announced, New York manager Aaron Boone declined comment. But asked about having room for another power bat, Boone coyly responded, “There’s always room for good players.”

The 36-year-old Encarnación has hit 21 home runs this season. He has averaged 37 homers and 109 RBIs in his last seven years.

There had been speculation the Yankees would be in the market for a top pitcher as the July 31 approached, but the Bronx Bombers always have room for big boppers.

“We know Edwin is a really good hitter,” Gleyber Torres said after homering for the AL East-leading Yankees in an 8-4 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Encarnación was not on the field with the Mariners as they warmed up for their game at Oakland. The Yankees and Mariners announced the trade right after Seattle lost 11-2.

“Edwin did great things here for us. I really think a lot of him, how he went about his business here, knowing that this could probably happen,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “It’s hard to go out and produce the way he did. He did everything we could ask him. He’s leading the league in home runs, he’s been awesome in our clubhouse. Certainly wish him the best.”

Encarnación, a first baseman and designated hitter, is hitting .241 and is among the league leaders with 49 RBIs and 48 runs scored. The three-time All-Star moved from Cleveland to Seattle last December in a three-team trade that included Tampa Bay.

Encarnación has 401 career home runs, including 18 in 69 games at the new Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees have been one of baseball’s best teams despite a long list of injuries.

Stanton could return next week after being sidelined by biceps, shoulder and calf injuries, and Judge also is inching closer after he strained his left oblique in April. Both stars are on rehab assignments in Triple-A.

Encarnación’s arrival means more juggling for the Yankees, who will have a roster full of talented players once everyone returns from the injured list. Last month, they acquired first baseman/DH Kendrys Morales from Oakland, but he’s struggled with New York.

Seattle either traded or let go many of its big-name players after last season, with Nelson Cruz, Robinson Cano, Edwin Diaz and Jean Segura among them. The new-look Mariners got off to a 13-2 start this year, but have since faded into last place in the AL West. They recently traded outfielder Jay Bruce to Philadelphia.

The Mariners said Then, who has been pitching in extended spring training, will report to Class A Everett. Originally signed by Seattle, he was traded to the Yankees after the 2017 season in a deal for pitcher Nick Rumbelow.

“We’ll look at a lot of different guys as we continue to move down the road and do this rebuild thing,” Servais said. “We’ve gotten a lot of young prospects back. Unfortunately, they’re not all here yet. It’s our job here to take the guys we’ve got and get the most out of them and get them to continue to improve, and that’s what we’re going to do.”

Hundreds protest plan to release convicted killer of 16-year-old New York girl

Hundreds of people marched silently through the streets of a suburban New York town in the dark on Saturday with candles illuminating the path taken by a 16-year-old girl who was brutally murdered as she walked home from the library nearly 40 years ago.

The peaceful protest was a plea to Gov. Andrew Cuomo to intervene in the imminent release of a man convicted in the 1980 murder of Paula Bohovesky, an honor student and aspiring actress who was beaten, sexually assaulted and stabbed to death in a crime so depraved it stunned law enforcement and shook the small town of Pearl River to its core.

“The justice provided by the court for Paula, her family, her friends and the Pearl River community has been stolen,” Rockland County Executive Ed Day said in response to a recent parole board decision to release 66-year-old Richard LaBarbera, one of two men convicted in Paula’s murder.

“The justice provided by the court for Paula, her family, her friends and the Pearl River community has been stolen.”

— Ed Day, Rockland County executive

“Governor Cuomo, you must take the necessary steps to have the parole board reverse its decision immediately,” Day said to applause from some 500 people gathered in front of the town’s gazebo. “For reasons not made known, a broken parole system that was charged to be a purveyor of justice has instead become a perversion of justice.”

CALLS MOUNT FOR CUOMO TO BLOCK IMMINENT RELEASE OF CONVICTED CHILD KILLER

LaBarbera was convicted of second-degree murder in the killing of the teen as she walked home from her part-time job at the library on Oct. 28, 1980, in the quiet hamlet, some 30 miles north of New York City.

Shocking decision

LaBarbera and another man, Robert McCain, were sentenced to 25 years to life for the murder – the toughest sentence at that time. Last month, a parole board of Cuomo appointees informed the family that LaBarbera will be released in July – a move that shocked victim advocates, state lawmakers and a town that has never healed from the savage crime.

McCain, 58, is set to go before the same parole board next week. The two were denied parole seven times since first becoming eligible in 2005.

“Neither one of them has taken responsibility and neither one of them has shown remorse,” Paula’s mother, Lois Bohovesky, told Fox News in an interview.

“Neither one of them has taken responsibility and neither one of them has shown remorse.”

— Lois Bohovesky, mother of teen who was murdered in 1980

Only three states – Maryland, Oklahoma and California – allow governors to reverse a parole board’s decision. But many critics, including former New York Gov. George Pataki, said Cuomo should pressure the parole board to reconsider its decision.

In a statement to Fox News, Pataki called the decision to grant LaBarbera parole a “gross injustice” and said Cuomo “should urge the parole board to reverse this horrible decision.”

PATAKI CALLS ON CUOMO TO INTERVENE IN PAROLE BOARD’S DECISION TO RELEASE 16-YEAR-OLD GIRL’S CONVICTED KILLER

“Granting parole to Richard LaBarbera for the brutal murder of this young girl is an outrage,” Pataki said.

‘Tremendous loss’

On Saturday, hundreds of residents — including many who knew the teen — gathered to remember the aspiring stage actress and artist who was known for her kindness and talent.

“All of us feel the tremendous loss of a beautiful person but I think the world has no idea of the talent that was taken,” said Patricia Muenzen, fighting back tears. “There are some people who just shine. That was Paula.”

“She was beautiful inside and out,” said Sharon Klass, who was Paula’s art teacher at Pearl River High School. “She was your friend — instantly. She just made you happy to be in the room with her.”

“She was beautiful inside and out. She was your friend — instantly. She just made you happy to be in the room with her.” 

— Sharon Klass, former teacher of Paula Bohovesky

The details of Paula’s murder were brutal.

Shortly after 7 p.m., the teen left her part-time job at the library and walked through the center of town toward her home on Hunt Avenue. She was within one block of her parents’ house when LaBarbera and McCain – both of whom had been drinking at the High Wheeler bar nearby – noticed her crossing an intersection.

McCain quickly caught up to Paula and crushed the right side of her skull with a chunk of pavement he grabbed from the ground. He then dragged her behind an abandoned home and sexually assaulted her, while LaBarbera watched, according to police.

Believing that the teen was dead, LaBarbera then tried to sexually assault her, investigators said. When she stirred, to his surprise, LaBarbera stabbed her with a knife five times in the back, killing her, police told Fox News.

A request for comment from Cuomo’s office was not immediately returned.

In a statement to Fox News, Thomas Mailey, a spokesman for the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, said: “The New York State Board of Parole, as the sole entity that considers and determines parole eligibility, is an independent body whose members were confirmed by the State Senate.”

Mailey added: “By law, before making a final decision, the Board members must follow statutory requirements which take ‎into consideration many factors, including statements made by victims and victims’ families, as well as an individual’s criminal history, institutional accomplishments, potential to successfully reintegrate into the community, and perceived danger to public safety.”

The Bohovesky case has sparked a larger debate on prison reform. Many Republican lawmakers have claimed the state was determined to lower the prison population and, in doing so, has adopted a system that favors criminals over victims.

A town changed forever

Many in Pearl River, meanwhile, said they will not stop fighting to keep Paula’s killers behind bars for a crime that changed their town forever.

Abigail Bohovesky, the victim’s only niece, has launched a “Say Something” campaign urging Cuomo to weigh in on the parole board’s decision.

“I was at my friend Katie’s house when Lois, Paula’s mom, came running in and asked if anyone had seen Paula,” said Patricia Stark, a former classmate of Paula’s.

“To think that you can murder a child in such a heinous and evil way and get out one day and see freedom is outrageous.”

— Patricia Stark, a former classmate of Paula’s

“I will never forget the look on her face – one of panic and terror,” Stark told Fox News. “It’s been emblazoned in my mind. As a mother now, I know what she must have been thinking and feeling. It was sheer horror.”

She continued, “To think that you can murder a child in such a heinous and evil way and get out one day and see freedom is outrageous.”

The Latest: Hong Kong activists urge public to hold strike

The Latest on protests in Hong Kong against an extradition bill (all times local):

1 p.m.

Hong Kong activists are encouraging the public to support strikes by workers, teachers and students on Monday.

The call comes as Hong Kong residents gather for a march through the downtown on Sunday to protest a government plan to enact extradition legislation. Hong Kong’s top leader said she was suspending the proposal but opponents want her to drop it for good.

Bonny Leung and other leaders of the pro-democracy Civil Human Rights Front say trade unions, teachers and others would carry on with plans for a strike on Monday as part of the campaign against the extradition bill.

She says, “We encourage all the public to carry on the campaign.”

___

10:15 a.m.

Hong Kong is bracing for another massive protest over an unpopular extradition bill, a week after the crisis brought as many as 1 million into the streets.

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Saturday said she was suspending work on the bill that would allow some suspects to be sent for trial in mainland Chinese courts.

But pro-democracy activists say that’s not enough. They want the proposal withdrawn and are calling for Lam to step down.

In Beijing, the communist government issued statements backing Lam’s decision.

Mourners meanwhile laid flowers Sunday on the pavement near where a man fell to his death a day earlier after hanging a protest banner on scaffolding on a shopping mall.

Emergency workers tried to cushion the man’s fall but failed to catch him.

Immigrants’ sponsors to be on hook for ‘every dollar’ if new arrivals end up on dole, new Trump appointee warns

Sponsors of legal immigrants to the United States received word Friday that they’ll be on the hook “for every dollar” if those immigrants end up receiving welfare funds or other public support instead of earning a living and paying taxes.

The message came Ken Cuccinelli, a former Virginia state attorney general who last week became acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) following his appointment by President Trump.

“If the sponsored immigrant receives any federal means-tested public benefits, the sponsor will be expected to reimburse the benefits-granting agency for every dollar of benefits received by the immigrant,” Cuccinelli wrote in a USCIS memo.

“If the sponsored immigrant receives any federal means-tested public benefits, the sponsor will be expected to reimburse the benefits-granting agency for every dollar of benefits received by the immigrant.”

‘Enforceable contract’

In addition, the same message instructed agents who work for USCIS to remind applicants and sponsors that “the Affidavit of Support is a legal and enforceable contract between the sponsor and the federal government.”

According to Cuccinelli, all federal agencies dealing with immigration issues will be working to update or initiate procedures and regulations to make sure that immigrants who are ineligible for public benefits do not receive them, in accordance with a May 23 directive from the president.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: ‘I DON’T WANT IMMIGRANTS THAT WILL BE DEPENDENT ON WELFARE’

“The President has made it a priority to ensure that every individual who seeks to come to the United States is self-sufficient, temporarily or permanently,” Cuccinelli wrote. “The principle of self-sufficiency has been enshrined in our immigration laws since the 1800s, and we as an agency must ensure that immigrants who become part of this great country abide by this principle.”

“The President has made it a priority to ensure that every individual who seeks to come to the United States is self-sufficient, temporarily or permanently.”

— Ken Cuccinelli, acting director, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

Cuccinelli took over at USCIS last Monday, coming to the job with a reputation as a hardliner on immigration issues. For example, he has been an advocate for denying citizenship to American-born children of parents living in the U.S. illegally and for limiting in-state tuition at public universities to citizens or legal residents.

He replaced Lee Francis Cissna, who reportedly had lost President Trump’s confidence.

Critical of McConnell, others in GOP

But Trump likely named Cuccinelli an acting director because his chances of winning Senate confirmation were said to be slim, Roll Call reported.

The outspoken Cuccinelli, as president of the Senate Conservatives Fund, a political action committee that has opposed many incumbent Republicans, has been critical of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others in the GOP.

“Mitch McConnell has filled the Senate with people like Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, Shelley Moore Capito, Lamar Alexander and Dean Heller who all promised the voters they would repeal Obamacare, but when the time came to do it they refused,” Cuccinelli wrote in an August 2017 fundraising memo, according to Roll Call. “Instead of admitting his mistake, McConnell is blaming the President for having ‘excessive expectations’ even though he was the one who set those expectations with years of empty promises!”

Trump’s appointment of Cuccinelli came as the president is dealing with a growing crisis as tens of thousands of Central American migrants cross the U.S.-Mexico border each month, overwhelming the system, and he has struggled to deliver on his signature issue of reduced immigration and tighter border security.

Top contenders for president in Guatemala election

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-ba21222acf364080ab1cbd1edc9926f7-1 Top contenders for president in Guatemala election GUATEMALA CITY fox-news/world/world-regions/americas fox-news/world fnc/world fnc Associated Press article 03efe3ff-3491-59ca-a634-c29d28b3caa6

Guatemalans head to the polls Sunday to choose their next president, as well as a vice president, congressional representatives and mayors. With 19 candidates in the race for president, a runoff vote is likely in August.

Unemployment, violence, corruption, rising costs of living and the shoddy state of the country’s highways are among top concerns for the country’s electorate. Surging migration has not emerged as a major campaign issue, even as an estimated 1 percent of Guatemala’s population of some 16 million people has left the country this year.

Here are the top-five candidates for president based on recent polls:

SANDRA JULIETA TORRES CASANOVA

Polls favor former first lady Sandra Torres of the National Unity and Hope party to finish first, but it is unlikely she will get enough votes to avoid a runoff. Torres, 64, is a businesswoman who gained national prominence during the 2008-2012 government of her then-husband, Álvaro Colom, when she served as coordinator of the Council on Social Cohesion, an entity dedicated to helping the marginalized and the poor. The couple divorced in 2011. This is the third time Torres has tried to run for president. Prosecutors opened an investigation into alleged illicit campaign financing involving her party. The case has not moved forward because candidates are protected from prosecution.

ALEJANDRO EDUARDO GIAMMATTEI FALLA

This four-time presidential candidate and former prison director is best-known for having put down a prison uprising in which several hostages were killed.

ROBERTO ARZÚ

A businessman and son of a former president, Arzú is polling close to Giammattei for second place. Arzú, who was once president of a soccer club, represents a coalition of conservative parties.

EDMOND AUGUSTE MULET LESIEUR

A lawyer, journalist and diplomat who was accused of running an international child adoption ring in the early 1980s that spirited orphans and other children who may have been abandoned out of Guatemala. Mulet, 68, later became the highest ranking Guatemalan in the United Nations.

THELMA CABRERA

The only indigenous candidate in the race and the top contender from a left-leaning party. Cabrera, 43, is a human and land rights defender from the indigenous Mam community.
