Suspect in brutal New York rape arrested near Canadian border after weeks-long manhunt

A man accused of brutally beating and raping a woman in a Queens, New York, neighborhood has been arrested in Washington state following a manhunt that lasted nearly a month.

Michael Hosang, 53, was apprehended by police on Thursday at a hotel in Bellingham, Wa., less than 25 miles from the Canadian border. Earlier this month, a 29-year-old woman escaped from his home with severe bruising and a broken cheekbone and claimed Hosang had held her there for at least six hours while he repeatedly sexually assaulted her.

She managed to escape from a second story window, then slid down a drainpipe, ran naked into the street and flagged down a passing car for help, the New York Daily News reports. The driver gave her something to cover herself with and called the police.

The woman told the authorities that Hosand had beaten, strangled and raped her, tied and handcuffed her in a room and told her that he would kill her.

After she escaped, Hosang fled New York in a red Chevrolet pickup truck and was on the run for the last three weeks until being discovered in Washington.

He is now awaiting extradition to New York, where he’ll face charges of first-degree rape, first-degree criminal sexual acts, first-degree aggravated sexual abuse and criminal obstruction of breathing, court records show.

Since reports of the attack first emerged, other women are said to have come forward with similar stories of their terrifying experiences with Hosang, according to the Bellingham Herald.

According to his Facebook page, Hosang is a manager at Hoops and Vivid Cabaret NYC, both strip clubs in the New York metropolitan area. He also claimed to have previously managed the Sapphire strip club in midtown Manhattan, and studied accounting at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Social media also shows that he has a daughter who graduated from a Florida college in 2016.

Hosang posted on his Facebook page at the time that he was attending his daughter’s graduation in Orlando, writing: “It’s already been one of those weeks. I don’t need bail money.”

Air National Guard member, 2 toddlers found dead in NYC home; husband in custody: reports

An Air National Guard member and her two young children were reportedly found murdered in their New York City home on Saturday — seven years after the mother was sworn in as a U.S. citizen, embarking on her American dream.

Alla ­Ausheva, 36, and toddlers Ivan, 2, and Elia, 3, were found dead in a home in the borough of Staten Island around 10:45 a.m., the New York Post reported, citing law enforcement sources.

Ausheva’s husband, 36-year-old Shane Walker, was arrested in connection with their deaths, although as of Saturday night no charges had been filed against him.

Investigators responded to the home Saturday morning to smoke filling the house. Sources told the news outlet that the children were found drowned in a bathtub, while Ausheva suffered from face and head trauma. She was reportedly found face-down on a bed.

Ausheva was sworn in as a U.S. citizen during a naturalization ceremony at the White House in 2012, according to a Post article published at the time.

Born in Russia, Ausheva moved to Queens with her husband — who had won a green card lottery — in 2011, and three months late signed up for the New York Army National Guard.

“I always wanted to live here,” she said. “This is really a country where you can pursue your dream and do what you want to do.”

Ausheva’s ceremony was presided over by former President Barack Obama. She said at the time that she “still cannot believe that I saw the president, and he said he is proud of me. … It’s incredible.”

‘Facebook fugitive,’ inspiration for country song, honors deal to surrender after 15,000 likes: reports

A fugitive in Connecticut who had agreed to surrender if his “wanted” post on Facebook collected 15,000 likes has kept his word, according to reports.

But Jose Simms, 30, did so belatedly, waiting until Wednesday after the post had received some 29,000 likes, FOX 6 of Springfield, Mass., reported.

Simms, who was believed to be homeless, contacted police in Enfield, Conn., who arrested him without incident, the report said.

The so-called “Facebook fugitive” was being held on $30,500 bond, according to FOX 6.

John Koufos: I am a former prisoner. Here’s why second chance hiring is so important

This month, the Trump administration served as a catalyst for perhaps the largest criminal justice public-private-partnership ever assembled, jobs for formerly incarcerated people as they reenter society.

As a former prisoner myself, this initiative is personal to me. When behind bars, no one asked me for money – but nearly everyone asked me for a job.

Virtually all of my cellmates wanted the dignity of work, so they could support themselves and their families, reunify with their families, and restore their self-worth. However, there is a stark difference between desiring to work and having a job available to you.

KIM KARDASHIAN WEST THANKS IVANKA TRUMP FOR SUPPORT ON CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM 

Fortunately, this administration understands this challenge and is working to promote second chance hiring to ensure inmates have opportunities to succeed after they have paid their debt to society and leave prison.

For example, the U.S. Department of Labor is increasing access to fidelity bonds for companies that hire returning citizens. The U.S. Department of Justice launched a “Ready to Work” initiative at the Bureau of Prisons to allow employers to connect with potential job candidates as they prepare to be released. And even the U.S. Department of Energy is working to fill jobs in this growing field. Governors across the country have also streamlined state services in order to reduce barrier to gainful employment.

More and more employers are realizing that second chance hiring is not only good for their businesses but also good for society as inmates with meaningful jobs are far less likely to return to criminal activity.

While this unprecedented level of governmental coordination is critical, the government cannot and should not do it alone. Private sector engagement is even more important as it is the driving force that spurs national economic growth.

Understanding the pivotal role of the private sector in second-chance hiring, the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) continues to throw their 300,000 human resources professionals behind this effort. Goodwill International pledged its national network of reentry providers as reinforcements to this endeavor.

John Koufos, national director of reentry initiatives at Right On Crime.

More and more employers are realizing that second chance hiring is not only good for their businesses but also good for society as inmates with meaningful jobs are far less likely to return to criminal activity.

Celebrities have also joined this effort to work alongside groups like the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Right on Crime project, and Safe Streets & Second Chances, which takes an evidence-driven approach to criminal justice reform.

Notably, Kim Kardashian West found a solution to one of the largest employment barriers: transportation. In February 2019, Florida State University released a report that cited transportation as one of the major hurdles for returning citizens in both urban and rural communities. West worked with criminal justice reform leaders to create new partnerships with ride-share services to establish a practical solution that reassures the business community as they make hiring decisions.

Today’s employers can invest in returning citizens with confidence thanks to this public-private-partnership. This should result in safer communities and greater employment with increased positive effects on the economy as you move an individual from a taxpayer drain to a taxpaying contributor. In addition, many returning citizens will be able to successfully navigate their own roads to redemption to become a functioning contributor to society.

I would not have the privilege of speaking on stage with the president recently if an employer did not give me the chance to prove myself.

I am married and expecting a baby daughter, and will be able to support my new family because a business leader believed in me. Thanks to the First Step Act and recent announcements, returning citizens across the country will be able to experience the same blessings.

Florida man sentenced to 15 years for dismembering father

Westlake Legal Group James-Scandirito-Palm-Beach-County-Jail Florida man sentenced to 15 years for dismembering father fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc e29d89ed-c591-56d2-b9d1-f7130e5ef50d David Aaro article

Florida man was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Friday for dismembering his father’s dead body, but was found not guilty of murder in the crime.

James “Jimmy” Scandirito, 50, of Boca Raton, was found guilty of “abuse of a dead body” after allegedly cutting up the corpse of his father, 74-year-old James “Skip” Scandirito.

The younger Scandirito was sentenced roughly a year after his father was found buried and dismembered underneath the Ocean Breeze Golf Club in Boca Raton. When handing out the sentence, Judge John Kastrenakes said Scandirito was unremorseful and tried to obstruct the investigation, according to the Palm Beach Post.

ILLINOIS MAN ACCUSED OF KILLING, DISMEMBERING 2-YEAR-OLD BOY STANDS TRIAL

James had originally told police his dad went on a kayaking trip and never returned, but officers followed the younger Scandirito to the golf course in March of last year, where they uncovered Skip’s upper and lower torso.

Police accused James of killing his father on March 28, 2018, putting his body parts in trash bags, sealing them with duct tape and burying them at the closed golf course.

During the trial, Scandirito said he found his father motionless in the living room on a pile of cocaine. Scared, he said he began cutting up the body and finding ways to dispose of it.

“It was one bad decision, and another bad decision, and a stupid decision, and a horrible decision,” Scandirito testified, according to the Palm Beach Post. “It just kept snowballing.”

Prosecutors said Scandirito hacked up his dad for inheritance money because he wasn’t doing well financially. They asked for the maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

FLORIDA WOMAN ARRESTED AFTER TURNING IN ESTRANGED HUSBAND’S GUN A DAY AFTER HE TRIED TO RUN HER OVER: REPORTS

“The only thing he has shown is that he wants to avoid responsibility for what he did,” Assistant State Attorney John Parnofiello told the court. “It is truly an atrocious thing that he’s done. It is an act that cries out for the maximum sentence.”

The defense team for Scandirito argued his need for drug-abuse treatment, not a prison term.

“He has never had treatment for the issues that have plagued is life,” Assistant Public Defender Elizabeth Ramsey said. “He is a man that can be reasoned with. He is a man who can learn. The appropriate sentence is to give him the opportunity to be rehabilitated.”

The Judge also handed Scandirito a $10,000 fine and a hearing is scheduled for Aug. 16 to determine if he’s responsible for paying the cost of the investigation.

Florida woman arrested after turning in estranged husband’s gun a day after he tried to run her over: reports

A Florida woman was reportedly arrested after taking firearms from her estranged husband’s home to turn in to police, a day after he allegedly tried to run over her.

Courtney Irby, 32, was arrested last Saturday and charged with one count of armed burglary after an arrest affidavit said she showed up to the Lakeland Police Department station with guns belonging to her husband, Joseph Irby, just one day after he was arrested on a domestic battery charge, WKMG reported.

According to police, Irby admitted to entering her husband’s apartment without permission and taking the guns to the station over fears he “wasn’t going to turn them in” himself.

“I did not even know where the guns were located. I had to search around the apartment for them, so I could bring them to you,” she told police, according to Fox 23.

But the officer speaking to Irby reportedly responded: “So, are you telling me you committed an armed burglary?”

Police contacted Irby’s husband, who was being held at the Polk County Jail for the previous day’s incident, and he informed officers that he wanted to file charges against his wife, WKMG reported.

She was arrested and charged. The Lakeland Police Department did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

The arrest affidavit revealed that the couple had finished a divorce hearing on June 14 when they got into an argument. While trying to leave the courthouse, Irby’s vehicle was allegedly rear-ended by her husband, who was attempting to run her off the road while she was on the phone with police.

Irby’s arrest has sparked public outcry from those criticizing law enforcement for arresting someone who seemed to be concerned with their own safety.

Democratic state Rep. Anna Eskamani said on Twitter that Irby “should not be prosecuted for protecting herself and her family.” She criticized the Lakeland Police Department for arresting someone “seeking help.”

Authorities: Theft ring stole $4 million in used cooking oil

A band of 21 conspirators stole $3.9 million worth of used of cooking oil, known as “yellow grease,” from restaurants in three states and transported it across the country, according to a federal indictment unsealed in North Carolina on Thursday.

The thieves targeted multiple eateries in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia over five years. They pumped the oil from restaurant storage tanks into trucks and sold it.

Federal prosecutors have charged 21 people part of an alleged conspiracy to steal used cooking oil, known as “yellow grease,” and transport it across the country.  (iStock)

“Used cooking oil has become a sought-after commodity by biodiesel companies, and restaurants use the sale of this oil as another source of revenue,” said John Eisert, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Charlotte, N.C., said in a new release. “This team of co-conspirators had an elaborate scheme to steal thousands of gallons of cooking oil for their own profit in violation of several U.S. laws.”

Used cooking oil has become a valuable commodity for biodiesel companies. The oil rendering industry loses between $45 million and $75 million to oil theft each year., U.S. Attorney Robert Higdon Jr. said in the release.

A pound of “yellow grease” is estimated to be worth around $25, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department.

In April, a Virginia man was charged with stealing hundreds of gallons of oil from a Burger King and three men in 2014 were charged in the theft of 10,000 gallons of oil in Illinois, according to The Associated Press.

Six of the defendants named in the federal indictment are still being sought. In addition to the theft charges, several defendants were also charged with immigration violations.

Man pleads guilty to sending ‘white powder,’ threatening letters to OkCupid’s Dallas office

A Massachusetts man pleaded guilty Thursday to sending threatening letters – one of which included white powder – to the Dallas office of the popular dating service OkCupid in 2017.

Liam MacLeod, 47, was arrested in February for sending the letter between September and December 2017, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said in a news release.

MacLeod, of Beverly, Mass., had been angry that the service banned him for violating the company’s terms of service, according to federal documents cited by the Dallas Morning News.

One of the letters sent to OkCupid’s Dallas office contained a “suspicious white powder” and the message: “Greeting from Beverly … Ban me will ya … Welcome to the wonderful world of ANTHRAX … Expect a package within the next couple of days … It won’t be ticking but it should be interesting!”

Eight more envelopes came postmarked from Boston, according to a criminal complaint. Some of those letters contained a blood-like substance and references to a suspended account, the Morning News reported. Dallas County health officials determined none of the envelopes contained hazardous materials.
