AZ Attorney General refuses to extradite ‘dangerous and violent’ suspect to

An Attorney General is so distrusting of how New York’s liberal leadership is handling crime that they want to keep a criminal in their state to ensure justice is served. Arizona’s Maricopa County Attorney General Rachel Mitchell said in a Wednesday press briefing that she will not release 26-year-old Raad Almansoori to authorities in New York City.

Mitchell said her motives are to keep the general public safe and keep the criminal locked up in Arizona rather than risk letting Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg release him. Almansoori is wanted in New York City for the brutal slaying of a sex worker.

Almansoori was arrested by police in Arizona this week after police say he stabbed two women there. He tried to rape one of them in a McDonald’s restroom at gunpoint. Mitchell said he is “dangerous and violent” and wanted by the NYPD for the horrific killing of 38-year-old Denisse Oleas-Arancibia, a mother of two who was found dead inside the SoHo 54 Hotel on Watts Street on Feb. 8. Police say she was killed by a suspect who beat her over the head with an iron, and bits of plastic from the appliance were found embedded in her skull.

He was out on bail at the time he killed Oleas-Arancibia on charges that he kidnapped another sex worker and sexually assaulted her in Sumter County, Florida, in 2023. Mitchell says she doesn’t trust Bragg to prosecute Almansoori, despite the gravity of his alleged crimes.

“I know there’s been a discussion about New York wanting to extradite this individual and this is not aimed at the New York Police Department at all,” Mitchell said. “I know they did a hard job, a good job, but we will not be agreeing to extradition.”

“I’ve instructed my extradition attorneys not to agree to that. We’re going to keep him here, these are mandatory prison sentences.”

“And having observed the treatment of violent criminals in the New York area by the Manhattan D.A. there, Alvin Bragg, I think it’s safer to keep him here and keep him in custody so that he cannot be out and doing this to individuals either in our state or county or anywhere in the United States.”

“He is being held without bond meaning there is no amount of money that he can post to get out of custody at this point.”
