Report: Man Wanted In Child Rape In Juarez Arrested In Phoenix

Detectives say a man wanted for the rape of a child has been deported to Mexico after being arrested in Phoenix, according to ABC-15 in Phoenix.

Miguel Manuel Hernandez-Beltran, 29, was arrested in Phoenix last month and deported to Mexico on June 28. He allegedly molested his 7-year old nephew approximately fifteen times in 2005 in Juarez, according to the US Marshals Office.

Shortly after law Mexican law enforcement became aware of the alleged molestation, authorities believe Hernandez-Beltran entered the United States illegally near El Paso and eventually traveled to Phoenix.

“Persons wanted for crimes in Mexico cannot find a safe haven in the United States,” United States Marshal David Gonzales said in the ABC-15 report. “The United States Marshals Service places a high priority on arresting those accused of sex crimes, particularly cases involving children. By two federal agencies working together, an accused child predator was arrested which now allows him to face justice.”
