An illegal alien who has been deported on two prior occasions by two separate states attempted to break into a California residence merely hours after he snuck back into the United States.
Fortunately for the home’s resident, the suspect fled before gaining entry after being spotted by her.
The unidentified victim told police that she was in her bedroom when she heard someone slowly opening a window from the outside. She pulled the curtain back and observed a male, later arrested and identified as Guillermo Damaso, 39.
The brave woman exited the residence through a side door and confronted Damaso, who fled the scene by climbing over a fence. He was then apprehended a few blocks away by the police.
Records revealed that Damaso was arrested in California on March 8 for driving under the influence and was somehow released two days later even though he was on active probation in the same state for weapons and drug violations. He also had an outstanding arrest warrant from Florida for exposing himself to minor children and adults.
Damaso told police that he illegally crossed into the U.S. from Mexico less than 24 hours before attempting to break into the residence in Port Hueneme. He is now being held on $200,000 bail and may be extradited to Florida or deported again.
“He says that he paid a coyote money to illegally cross into the United States,” said Chief Andrew Salinas of the Port Hueneme Police Department. “What was even more concerning is that within that 24 hours, he was up to his same behavior as he had previously been deported for.”
