ICE arrests Ecuadoran national after being released on kidnapping, indecent assault of a child charges



BOSTON — Enforcement and Removal Operations Boston arrested an unlawfully present Ecuadoran national June 7 in Brockton.

Local police arrested a 35-year-old Ecuadoran man last month and charged him with multiple felonies, including two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under age 14, one count of kidnapping of a child, and a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery. A local criminal court in Brockton released him on pretrial conditions following his arraignment.

“Unlawfully present suspected predators pose a public safety threat to families and communities in our region. They will be apprehended and removed by our officers,” said ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd Lyons. “This is a central part of ERO Boston’s mission, and we will not relent in pursuing it.”

The native of Ecuador, who admitted to crossing the United States’ southern border from Mexico without authorization in July 2016, is unlawfully present and has been determined by immigration authorities to be amenable to removal proceedings.

ERO Boston officers encountered the unlawfully present foreign citizen when he was driving without a valid driver’s license; his license had been suspended following his conviction in state court in October 2020 for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. He was arrested on immigration violations and taken into ERO Boston’s custody, where he will remain pending an upcoming hearing before a federal immigration judge.

The name of the suspect was not released.
