Mexican national suspected to have fled the Baltimore area is arrested on sex charges by immigration agents

Federal immigration agents say a Mexican national who was in the United States illegally has been arrested on state charges of rape and sexual assault.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a news release Thursday that an enforcement and removal team located Alfredo Carreon-Lopez at a Forsyth County, N.C., business.

The agency said Carreon is suspected to have fled the Baltimore area after a Maryland state arrest warrant was issued on charges of first-degree rape, second-degree rape, sexual abuse of a minor, first and second-degree assault, and multiple additional sexual offense charges.

Carreon, who was arrested last Friday, is jailed in Mecklenburg County to await extradition back to Maryland.
