Leah Palian, 26, says alleged killer Raad Almansoori, 26, held her captive in his Orlando, Florida, home before choking and sexually assaulting her last April.
‘I hate having to do this. “I hate having to kill you,” Almansoori allegedly told Palian during the ordeal, as reported by The New York Post.
Alamsoori was arrested after Palian managed to escape by running to a rest stop bathroom and calling 911. But despite his warnings that he was extremely dangerous, Alamsoori was released on $2,500 bail, months before he killed to Queens single mother Denisse Oleas. -Arancibia, 38 years old, according to police.
Palian wrote on Facebook: ‘Despite my chilling warning to the Florida State Attorney that his actions were indicative of a possible serial killer, they callously released him, dropping all but one charge (car theft).
Raad Almansoori, 26, accused of killing a sex worker in a Soho hotel and stabbing another person in Arizona, has now been charged with strangling another woman in Florida last year.
Palian managed to escape by running to a rest stop bathroom and calling 911. But despite his warnings that it was extremely dangerous, Alamsoori was released on bail.
When staff discovered Denisse Oleas-Arancibia’s body on the morning of February 8, the 38-year-old woman was lying under a blanket and next to a broken iron, having been admitted the day before.
Palian met Amansoori at his job at an Orlando restaurant before she started driving him home from work.
‘Even more terrifying is the fact that he contacted me via an unknown number just two weeks before this, despite a no contact order in our ongoing case.
‘The chilling fact remains: the blood of an innocent mother stains their hands. Florida’s justice system has not only failed me but has turned a blind eye to the imminent danger I posed to many other women.’
Palian met Amansoori at his job at an Orlando restaurant before she started driving him home from work. The alleged assault occurred after she asked him to sleep on her couch one night to avoid the long trip.
The next day, Palian woke up to Almansoori ‘hugging’ her in her bed before declaring that he was in love with her. He then took her phone and saw a text message in which Palian described her behavior the night before as strange.
Alamansoori then allegedly locked the front door and closed the windows before launching his assault.
“He got on top of me and started strangling me with a dead look in his eyes… He knew where to grab me; he immediately cut off my oxygen,” Palian told the Daily News. ‘He said, “Scream and I will kill you.”‘
Amansoori then took Palian to the bedroom and ordered her to perform oral sex on him.
“It was like he was so excited and so excited that he had just strangled someone almost to the point of death,” he recalled. “I kept thinking I’m going to die here in my apartment.”

Palian eventually convinced Amansoori to drive to pick up his vehicle from the mechanic and allow him to use the bathroom at a rest stop, where he was able to call 911.
Amansoori fled in her car, but was arrested the next day two hours from Orlando.
Orlando officials told the Daily News there was “insufficient evidence to prove the charges of sexual assault and aggravated assault beyond a reasonable doubt.”
Almansoori is in custody on suspicion of killing Queens sex worker Oleas-Arancibia by strangling her and hitting her in the head at the Soho 54 hotel on February 8.
Palian says the alleged killer sent him a text message, despite a no-contact order, on the same day as the murder in Soho.
‘Why did you treat me so miserably? You should never treat a man like that. I never deserved to be treated that way,” Amansoori texted.
Oleas-Arancibia (pictured left) came to the United States five years ago, leaving behind her family, including one of her children.
He was arrested in Arizona after stabbing another woman at a McDonald’s, authorities said.
At a news conference Tuesday, the NYPD revealed new details, including that Almansoori was out on bail on auto theft allegations in Florida.
He also reportedly confessed to assaulting three other women.
“We are working with our partners to arrange for his extradition so that he can be charged with the homicide here,” said NYPD Chief of Detectives Joseph Kenny.
But Arizona prosecutors are refusing to send the accused killer to New York thanks to what they call the Manhattan district attorney’s lax treatment of “violent criminals.”
Maricopa County (AZ) District Attorney Rachel Mitchell appeared on Dan Abrams Live on NewsNation to explain her decision to keep the suspect in Arizona.
‘I have him here without a bond, which means he can’t get out of the bond. You cannot post any amount of money to get out of jail. And I think that’s the best place for him right now,” she stated.
‘The rule is not to extradite; The rule is that the person who has it goes first. “We have extremely serious charges here and we are going to go first.”
Surveillance footage of Almansoori captured after the murder of Oleas-Arancibia wearing a suit on a well-lit Manhattan street.
Confirming the chronology of events, Kenny said Almansoori had purchased a plane ticket from Florida to New York on January 26.
According to Kenny, he used his credit card three days later in the Big Apple and visited an escort in Upper Manhattan on February 6.
Oleas-Arancibia died from neck compression and blunt head trauma, according to a spokesman for the city medical examiner.
A bloody iron was found next to his body. Police also recovered a pair of bloody pants with a hotel room receipt.
Oleas-Arancibia’s body was found the morning of February 8, and four days later, Almansoori reportedly flew back to Arizona from Newark.
Authorities in Arizona arrested him Sunday after he stabbed a woman at McDonald’s after dragging her into the women’s bathroom and holding her against her will.
Police say Almansoori was arrested shortly after he tried to flee in a stolen car and admitted while in custody to being stabbed earlier in Phoenix. In that incident, a woman was stabbed when a man tried to steal her car at knifepoint.
Almansoori was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and robbery.
He was also charged with robbery, assault, theft and criminal mischief in the separate Phoenix investigation. He is being held without bail.
Kenny added that extradition could take “days, weeks or even months.”
Police said last week they had been using “extensive video” to locate the person of interest in Oleas-Arancibia’s death.
