Federal agents in Sacramento arrested a suspected ISIS member Wednesday on charges that he killed an Iraqi police officer in 2014 in the Rawah District of Al-Anbar province as fighters were taking over the town.

Omar Abdulsattar Ameen, 45, was arrested in a raid at an Eastern Avenue apartment complex in Sacramento County and appeared in federal court Wednesday afternoon as part of extradition proceedings to return him to Iraq to face trial on a charge of premeditated murder.

Court documents unsealed Wednesday afternoon describe Ameen as a “terrorist” and leader of al-Qaida forces that captured and executed soldiers, and as a close associate of well-known terror leaders in the region.

The article goes on to state the following:

Ameen was brought into a 13th floor courtroom in the federal building in downtown Sacramento shortly after 3:30 p.m. for his initial appearance. He wore a faded blue T-shirt, green cargo shorts and sneakers without socks and had his legs and arms shackled as he listened to the proceedings through an Arabic interpreter.

He did not speak as U.S. Magistrate Judge Edmund F. Brennan explained he would be held in custody as a flight risk and danger to the community pending a hearing Monday afternoon.

“The government of Iraq seeks your extradition to that country for the charge of murder,” Brennan explained.

The SacBee also reported:

Ameen entered the country seeking asylum as a refugee, but court papers say he lied about his background.

He arrived in Turkey in April 2012 to begin the process of seeking asylum, and lied about his background, claiming his father had been killed because he had cooperated with U.S. forces, documents say. Instead, the documents say his father died of a cerebral clot on Christmas Day 2010.

Ameen was approved to come to the United States as a refugee on June 5, 2014, but instead is believed to have returned to Iraq to commit the slaying two weeks later, court documents say.

A photo of a resume filed with the documents lists his first job in the United States as a truck loader at a thrift store in Salt Lake City in January 2015, and says he started work in Sacramento as an auto mechanic in February 2016.

In an interview with immigration authorities in May 2016, after coming to Sacramento, he repeatedly lied about his past, saying he had never killed anyone, used weapons against people or belonged to violent groups, documents say.
