BREAKING: Venezuelan illegal immigrant arrested for sexual assault of minor in Virginia

He has been charged with two felonies and is being held without bond.


An illegal immigrant male has been arrested in Campbell County, Virginia, and charged with sexual assault against a minor.

32-year-old Renzo Mendoza Montes is a Venezuelan national. In September, he was detained and released by US Customs and Border Patrol in El Paso, Texas. He has been charged with two felonies, per local news.

Court records obtained by WSLS revealed that the offense occurred on January 21, and Montes received one charge related to the sexual assault of a victim between the ages of 13 and 14, and another charge involved "sexual offenses" against a child under the age of 15.

According to the Daily Mail, Montes is believed to be in Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.

This comes after another Venezuelan man was charged in the murder of Augusta nursing student Laken Riley. Jose Antonio Ibarra, 26, was arrested and charged in connection with her death. Riley was out for a job on UGA's campus at the time she was attacked and killed by Ibarra.

Ibarra also entered the country illegally in September and put in an asylum claim. That claim gave him the legal status, under the Biden administration, to remain in the US pending trial. It is unknown when his trial was set for, but many asylum seekers are given dates to appear in court many years into the future.

In Ibarra's case, he applied for asylum with his wife, who said the two got married in order to merge their two cases. They entered the country together along with her 5-year-old son. Ibarra was arrested on child endangerment charges in New York, though the case was dismissed, and the records sealed.

Ibarra then left New York and went to Georgia where he has a brother who had obtained work on the UGA campus using a fake green card.
