The 31-year-old suspect was not home when Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Special Victim’s Unit executed a search warrant last week for an investigation of aggravated sexual assault of a child at the home in the 400 block of Gladstell.

“The victim was 11 years old when the abuse started,” the sheriff’s office said, according to The Courier. “During the execution of the search warrant at the suspect’s residence, the suspect was not home but detectives received information that the suspect was intending to flee the United States and head back to Mexico.”

A second search warrant was executed the next day at a different location and on Saturday, Tiscareno Hernandez was located and arrested by detectives and SWAT; Investigators with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office; Special Agents with the FBI, ICE and the US Marshals Service.

While Tiscareno Hernandez is currently being held in Montgomery County Jail, an ICE hold has been requested which will turn him over into federal custody following his jail sentence.
