Armed black man targets 3-year old's birthday party

BOISE, Idaho -- A man who had been asked to leave an apartment complex in Boise returned the next day and stabbed children celebrating a 3-year-old girl's birthday, authorities said Sunday. Six children, ages four to 12, were injured in the attack, along with three adults who rushed to their defense. Boise Police Chief William Bones said the victims are alive but some are gravely injured.

A resident of the apartment complex where the stabbing took place had allowed 30-year-old Timmy Kinner to stay there a short time, but asked him to leave Friday because of his behavior, Bones said. Kinner returned Saturday, when the girl was having her party a few doors down from where he had stayed, according to police.

Kinner, of Los Angeles, was charged with nine counts of aggravated battery and six counts of injury to a child, CBS affiliate KBOI-TV reports.

Esrom Habte, 12, and Fathi Mahamoud, 11, were playing in the grass behind their apartment when the attack began.

ICE arrests more than 100 workers in raid on Ohio meat supplier

(CNN) — Federal immigration officials on Tuesday raided a large meat supplier based in Massillon, Ohio, and arrested more than 100 workers suspected of using stolen or fraudulent identification to gain employment.

As many as 100 agents from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, US Customs and Border Protection and the US Border Patrol descended upon four facilities operated by Fresh Mark during the late afternoon raid. Authorities said they made 146 arrests during the raid, which ICE said makes it the largest worksite raid nationally in at least a decade.

The raid -- which was conducted with no prior notice to the business -- was the largest workplace enforcement action to take place under the Trump Administration, said Steve Francis, special agent in charge of ICE's Homeland Security Investigations unit, which oversees Michigan and Ohio.

Officials arrived with criminal and federal search warrants to collect documents on more than 200 employees. The warrants were served at Fresh Mark's facilities in Salem, Massillon and Canton, Ohio.

Another bloody weekend in Chicago: 8 dead, 46 wounded in gun violence

CHICAGO — At least eight people were killed and 46 others were wounded over the weekend in shooting incidents, an ugly turn for the nation's third-largest city as it made progress stemming the murder rate in the first half of 2018. In addition to the weekend’s fatal shootings, the city recorded a ninth homicide early Monday. A man, who police said was in his 30s, was killed by blunt force trauma on the city’s Southwest Side. Police said they found a weapon but declined to give details about it or the circumstances of the killing. Investigators said many of the weekend's incidents were gang-related. The city historically sees a frustrating uptick in gun violence as the temperature warms.

Evanston Woman Will Lose Eye From Sucker Punch On CTA Red Line

CHICAGO — A 67-year-old Evanston woman needs surgery to remove an eye after she was punched by a man on a CTA Red Line train Thursday, prosecutors said. A man was arrested in the apparently random and unprovoked attack the following day and ordered held without bond Sunday after allegedly stealing a pair of shoes.

Derrick McMath, 28, of the 11000 block of South 76 Avenue in Worth, was charged with aggravated battery involving great bodily harm to someone aged 60 or older and retail theft in connection with the two incidents.

CTA surveillance video showed McMath jumping over the turnstile at the Red Line station and getting onto a northbound train, according to prosecutors. The Chicago Tribune reported McMath can be seen bending over the woman, punching her in the face and taking off running as the doors open at the Jarvis stop.
That same day, McMath walked into a shoe store in the Logan Square neighborhood wearing the same clothes as the man pictured in the attack, prosecutors said. The Sun-Times reported he had tried on a pair of Sketchers worth $45 and walked out of the store in the 2100 block of N. Milwaukee Avenue without paying before he was chased down by a store staffer and arriving police.

Trump-bashing Puerto Rican mayor reportedly facing FBI corruption probe
The mayor of Puerto Rico who shot to international fame after criticizing President Trump for not doing enough to help Hurricane Maria victims is being investigated by the FBI on corruption charges, according to multiple news outlets.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and her administration are under fire for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of the category-4 hurricane that leveled much of the tiny U.S. territory nearly nine months ago.

The FBI reportedly launched the investigation following a February lawsuit filed by Yadira Molina, the former director of procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated against for reporting “alleged irregular acts” to the local comptroller.

“On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz Soto,” according to El Vocero de Puerto Rico.
