News Americas, WASHINGTON, D.C., Fri. Sept. 20, 2013: An El Salvadoran man living in Richmond, Virginia and wanted in El Salvador for the aggravated sexual assault of a minor and sexual harassment has been deported.

Carlos Humberto Castaneda-Mendoza, 40, was arrested by officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) and returned back to El Salvador on Friday, September 13th.

Castaneda-Mendoza entered the U.S. illegally in August 2010 and in November 2010, Interpol issued a red notice for the warrant in El Salvador.

“This arrest and removal reinforces that one cannot come to the U.S. to escape from their actions in their home country,” said M. Yvonne Evans, field office director for ERO Washington. “Dangerous people such as Mr. Castaneda are hiding in plain sight within our communities and we are working hard to keep our communities safe from these individuals.”

In the first nine months of fiscal year 2013, the PNC executed more than 146 criminal arrest warrants with fugitives being returned to El Salvador aboard ICE removal flights. Many of those arrests involved homicide-related charges or other violent crimes.
