BOSTON — Enforcement and Removal Operations Boston apprehended an unlawfully present Guatemalan national charged with raping a minor in Bristol County. Deportation officers from ERO Boston arrested Yader Alexander Morales-Quevedo, a 24-year-old, Guatemalan noncitizen in New Bedford.

“Yader Alexander Morales-Quevedo will have his day in court, but he is facing some very serious charges,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons. “He posed a significant threat to the children in our Massachusetts communities. ERO Boston will continue to prioritize public safety by arresting and removing egregious noncitizen offenders from our New England neighborhoods.”

Morales-Quevedo unlawfully entered the United States on an unknown date at an unknown location, and without being inspected, admitted or paroled by a U.S. immigration official.

The New Bedford District Court arraigned Morales-Quevedo Aug. 30, 2022, for the offense of rape of a child. The court upgraded the charges to be heard by the Superior Court.

The Bristol County Superior Court arraigned Morales-Quevedo Jan. 3, 2023, for the offenses of rape of a child and for child in nude, lascivious pose/exhibit.

Deportation officers from ERO Boston arrested Morales-Quevedo in New Bedford on May 28. He will remain in ERO custody pending the outcome of his removal proceedings.
