Man wanted for sexually assaulting Texas teen arrested at the Mexican border
Anzalduas, Texas (KWTX) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Anzalduas International Bridge arrested Jesus Hernandez Resendez, wanted in Edinburg, Texas on aggravated sexual assault charges.
Hernandez Resendez, 48, is a legal permanent resident from Mexico.
Authorities detained the man during a secondary identification check after he arrived at the Anzualduas border crossing.
Officeers learned the man had an active arrest warrant from the San Juan, Texas police department.
Hernandez Resendez is wanted for a 2015 aggravated sexual assault charge involving a 14-year-old girl.
“Our ability to check every person arriving from Mexico through CBP and law-enforcement databases allows us to determine who we are dealing with, whether further inspection is warranted or in cases like this, to discover that an outstanding arrest warrant exists for that person,” said Port Director Carlos Rodriguez, Port of Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas.
