On Friday, police in West Fargo arrested Kokouvi Mawuena Afidegnon, 30, after he reportedly assaulted a woman with an axe in the 200 block of Eighth Avenue West. He set upon the victim as she was walking to her car, according to police.
The woman, covered in blood, escaped to a nearby residence where she was able to call 911. While inside the home, Afidegnon spotted her and threw the short-handled axe through the window at her.
The victim was taken to Essentia Hospital for treatment. Her condition is not known at this time.
Afidegnon and the victim are neighbors, the police report stated.
Afidegnon has been charged with two counts of assault, aggravated assault, criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and attempted murder. He is currently being held at the Cass County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
Over the last several years, Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota, brings hundreds of so-called 'refugees' from Africa to North Dakota, placing them in Fargo, West Fargo, Grand Forks, and Bismark. The group's website states: "Refugees bring diversity to our area, helping us learn about and from different cultures."
Unfortunately, the refugees, mostly from violence-torn countries such as Liberia, Rwanda and Somalia are responsible for a sharp increase in crime in the sparsely populated state of North Dakota. Of course, these refugees are being supported with taxpayer-funded grants.
However, what many refer to as the 'refugee racket' and the damage to public safety is not limited to North Dakota...
In the mid-1990s, the U.S. State Department began bringing large numbers of Somali nationals to Minnesota, granting them refugee status due to the civil war, general violence and poverty which still grip Somalia today.
Most of those refugees were sent to Minnesota because state-based voluntary agencies (VOLAGS), namely Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities, and World Relief Minnesota contracted with the State Department to settle refugees, mostly in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
These VOLAGS provide the newly-arrived foreign nationals with such services as making housing arrangements to providing English language classes. But their main service is helping these refugees apply for welfare.
By the end of 2010, the U.S. had admitted 83,991 Somali nationals, with roughly 40 percent of them initially settling in Minnesota. Many more have since been allowed to immigrate legally, and many others have entered the country illegally as well.
Since their arrival, the Minneapolis-St. Paul area has seen a veritable explosion in crime, including sex trafficking. In November 2010, dozens of Somali gang members were charged with running an interstate sex-trafficking ring that forced Somali girls, as young as 12-years-old into prostitution.
Basically, the American taxpayers are being forced to support a Third World crime wave, during a time when local law enforcement budgets are already stretched thin, all in the name of 'diversity.'
