One police department in New York and another in New Jersey have released two credibly accused child rapists after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requested they be held until federal immigration agents could take them into custody. (CBS New York)
Despite requests that the men be held in jail until officers from ICE could pick them up, local law enforcement in both states released the suspects back into the public.
ICE says the first man — Luciano Trejo-Dominguez – was arrested by Vineland, New Jersey police for allegedly restraining and sexually assaulting a child younger than 16 on Aug. 12.
Trejo-Dominguez has been charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault of a victim 13-15 years-old, criminal restraint, criminal sexual contact, and endangering the welfare of a child.
The other man – Joaquin Rodriguez Quiroz – was arrested by police in New York’s Westchester County on 3rd-degree rape charges on Sept. 6.
Anyone with information on where these fugitives are should call 1-866-DHS-2-ICE.
