Two Afghan Evacuees Charged with Domestic Violence, Sex with Minors at Fort McCoy

The cases are unrelated


Two men who were evacuated from Afghanistan have been arrested at an army base in Wisconsin.

The cases are unrelated, according to a statement from the Justice Department on Wednesday.

Bahrullah Noori, 20, was charged with attempting to engage in a sexual act with a minor using force against that person, and with three counts of engaging in a sexual act with a minor, with one count alleging the use of force.

According to the indictment, the victims are at least four years younger than Noori. They are also all under the age of 16.

Mohammad Haroon Imaad, 32,  allegedly strangled and suffocated his wife on Sept. 7.

In the criminal complaint, Imaad’s wife said he “beat me many times in Afghanistan to the point I lost vision in both eyes.”

“She stated that she had been the victim of hitting, strangulation, verbal abuse as well as rape since arriving at Fort McCoy at the hands of Mohammad Imaad,” the complaint says.

The Wisconsin Justice Department says that “if convicted, Noori faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 30 years and a maximum of life in federal prison on the charges alleging use of force, and a maximum penalty of 15 years on the other two charges.  Imaad faces a maximum penalty of 10 years.  The charges against them are the result of investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Fort McCoy Police Department.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Taylor Krausnd and Assistant U.S. Attorney Zachary Corey will handle the prosecution of Noori and Imaad respectively.

They were arraigned on Sept. 23 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephen L. Crocker.

“The incidents appear to be the first instances of significant crimes on U.S. soil by any of the more than 60,000 Afghan evacuees, many of whom worked with U.S. service members in Afghanistan, who are making their way into the country,” per Military.com. “The Department of Defense has, in the past, dealt with instances of child sexual abuse perpetrated by Afghan people who worked closely with U.S. forces.”

Sexual and domestic violence are not commonly reported in Afghanistan because of cultural norms, according to a United Nations report. Incidents are considered private family matters.

    Anyone else tired of being right? I’m getting tired of knowing the future like a goddamned fortune teller. I knew this specifically would happen. Sexual violence is an inherent part of Afghan tribal culture. What’s worse it’s true that women and young girls are not the only victims. Boys are victimized as much or possibly more than women. Everyone knows about the chai boys. Ad this to the female US servicemember who got assaulted at Fort Bliss and we’re about to pull a damned hat trick in less than a few weeks. Now that I heard the Haitians got violent with CBP/Customs agents when deported means I’m one step closer to being proven right that a Haitian migrant will inevitably hack someone to pieces with a machete.

    Why don’t we just hang them ? Why should we spend even more money that we really don’t have on keeping these dudes alive in prison? I’m all about helping some of the Afghanis but we definitely need to keep them in separate populations. Or maybe just take them to another country.

    they say that we are crazy for wanting these people vetted. look at the UK, they had a sex predator ring and didnt even deport the men responsible. put them in jail for 4 years for running a kidnapping and grooming ring. the abused had to see their abusers every day and the govt did nothing about it.

    Why did we evacuate these people rather than actual Americans?

    Oh right because the Biden Admin is purposefully torpedoing everything they touch.

    Meanwhile in New Mexico, a female soldier was gang raped at Fort Bliss by a group of Afghan migrants. The future is going to be horrendous with these people here.

    Afghanistan is bad

    It took approx. two weeks of getting there for this to happen. Definitely thorough checks and evaluations of these evacuees. I wish them the best, but I don’t see them assimilating very easily. England, France, Germany, etc are prime examples.

    Hannah and Chris, great headline, seriously. The comma and then the immediate “The cases are unrelated” clarification are top notch. We don’t and won’t see that in most media articles.

    “Wow Afghan refugees are acting like savages!” Imagine being surprised.
