Honduran national wanted for rape caught by CBP agents as he attempt to enter U.S.

TUCSON – A Honduran national with a violent criminal history, Alex Josue Mendez-Maldonado, as he attempted to enter the United States at the Dennis DeConcini Crossing. Mendez-Maldonado was turned over to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office where he will await extradition to Louisiana.

On Monday morning, Mendez-Maldonado presented a copy of 30-year-old man’s Honduran birth certificate and told officers that he wanted to seek asylum. After officers referred Mendez-Maldonado to the Passport Control Unit, a records check revealed that Mendez-Maldonado has a full outstanding warrant for a rape charge out of New Orleans, Louisiana, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Mendez-Maldonado had previous arrests in Wisconsin for trespassing, and Louisiana for resisting an officer, simple battery, and disturbing city council charges.

“I am proud of our CBP officer’s dedication by intercepting this individual in denying him further opportunities to prey on our communities within the U.S.,” said Area Port Director Michael Humphries. “This incident is a prime example of how the Office of Field Operations plays a key role in keeping our country safe.”
