SOUTH TEXAS — U.S. Customs and Border Protection saved a rope-bound woman from the illegal alien who kidnapped her.
A Del Rio Sector spokesman, Dennis Smith says the woman assisted the suspect when she found him wandering in her backyard. She provided him with food and water for three days.
After having sheltered him for the three days, the man turned on the woman, tying up her hands and feet and kidnapping her by forcing her into her own car, which he planned on stealing.
However, the woman managed to escape and fled on foot while the suspect attempted to start the car. Eyewitnesses saw her frantically running along Farm-to-Market Road 1917. The Dimmit County Sheriff’s Office responded to calls about a woman being seen along that highway.
The illegal alien remained at large until he was eventually detained by authorities when he faked a medical emergency phone call. Upon the ambulance’s arrival, they determined the illegal alien was the suspect who kidnapped the woman.
He has been charged with two felony counts of burglary of a habitation and aggravated kidnapping. Currently, he is locked up in the Dimmit County Jail.
