Iraqi Immigrant Charged With Home Invasion Arrested At Chicago Airport
CHICAGO, IL - Last week, Orland Park police arrested Faisal S. Radi, 35, at O’Hare Airport, as he stepped off of a plane from Frankfurt, Germany. The Iraqi national fled the country after reportedly committing a very violent home invasion in 2015, according to court documents.
NBC 5 News reported:
“Officers responded about 11:35 p.m. Sept. 18, 2015, to reports of a break-in at a home in the 9100 block of Fairmount Court, police said. There, they learned Radi allegedly forced his way in, hit someone with a gun and fled the scene.”
He left the country the next day, and a warrant was issued for his arrest on September 23, 2015.
On April 24, 2020, Orland Park police were tipped off to Radi's whereabouts by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Radi has been charged with felony home invasion and is currently being held at the Cook County Jail on $1.5 million bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for May 14 at the Bridgeview Courthouse on S. 76th Avenue. *It should be noted that Chicago is an official 'sanctuary city' for illegal aliens, and though not a citizen, and remaining a fugitive from justice for more than four years, if Radi can post bail (with 10 percent of his bond to a bail bondsman), he could simply be released back onto the streets, as Cook County does not cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
