Border Patrol Agents Arrest Fugitive Wanted For Sexual Misconduct

Douglas Station Border Patrol agents arrested a Mexican national Tuesday afternoon wanted by the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office in Minnesota for criminal sexual misconduct.

Agents arrested Jose Perez-Manriquez, 35, east of Douglas for entering the U.S. illegally. While conducting a records check, agents discovered an active warrant had been issued for his arrest in St. Paul in September 2017.

Perez is being processed for immigration violations and will be extradited to Ramsey County to face prosecution for criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree.
