3 min read

In a shocking turn of events, the suspect involved in the brutal beating and strangulation death of Denisse Oleas-Arancibia in a SoHo hotel has been apprehended in Arizona. The accused, Raad Almansoori, 26, is now facing charges not only in connection to the New York City hotel murder but also for a series of stabbings across the country.

The police have uncovered a disturbing pattern of violence, revealing Almansoori’s alleged involvement in assaults on women in Arizona and Florida.

Denisse Oleas-Arancibia, 38, was found dead in the SoHo 54 Hotel in February, with a broken iron and bits of plastic embedded in her skull. Almansoori was identified as the primary suspect, and recent developments indicate that he made statements linking himself to this heinous crime while in custody in Arizona.

Almansoori’s arrest in Arizona shed light on a series of violent incidents, with him admitting to two stabbings in Surprise and Phoenix. Several of the victims in these cases, including the tragic incident in the SoHo hotel, were reported to be women working as escorts.

The suspect’s ominous statements while in custody hinted at his involvement in additional attacks in Florida and Texas, raising concerns about the extent of his criminal activities.

The arrest unfolded after Surprise, Arizona police responded to a stabbing incident at a McDonald’s where a woman had been stabbed multiple times. Almansoori, fleeing the scene, stole a nearby car, leading to his subsequent arrest by the Scottsdale Police Department.

He admitted to the recent stabbing in Phoenix and is now facing charges of attempted homicide, theft of means, aggravated assault in Surprise, and robbery, assault, theft, and criminal damage in Phoenix.

Investigations revealed that Almansoori arrived in New York City in late January, with credit card information indicating his visit to an escort in upper Manhattan. Subsequent credit card transactions tracked his movement, showing the purchase of a plane ticket to Arizona, where he allegedly committed the two crimes leading to his arrest.

Further scrutiny of Almansoori’s past revealed a history of arrests, primarily related to domestic violence and assault. His prior criminal record includes charges such as the kidnapping and sexual assault of a female. Authorities are now revisiting unsolved crimes in Florida and Texas, where the suspect has previously lived.

The New York Police Department is collaborating with the FBI to gather more information on Almansoori’s criminal activities. They are urging the public and law enforcement agencies to come forward with any relevant information. Last week, the NYPD released photos of Almansoori leaving the SoHo 54 Hotel, wearing the leggings of the victim, as part of their efforts to gather evidence.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has dispatched prosecutors to Maricopa County, Arizona, to initiate the extradition process for Almansoori. The legal proceedings aim to ensure that he faces charges in connection to the NYC hotel murder and the string of violent incidents across the country.

The arrest of Raad Almansoori brings a sense of relief to the communities affected by his alleged crimes. As the legal process unfolds, authorities are focused on building a comprehensive case against the suspect, shedding light on the extent of his involvement in the disturbing pattern of violence that has left a trail of victims across multiple states.
