The Seattle Times reported that prosecutors have charged a man with luring and second-degree assault after he allegedly tried to force a 14-year-old girl into his truck.
The suspect is 51-year-old Esequiel Medina-Vasquez and yes he is an illegal immigrant that has been deported twice. He was deported in 2007 and 2014. He was also arrested in 2017 for coming into the country illegally he didn’t get sent back. Instead, he was allowed back on the streets, where he was able to attempt a sexual assault against a 14-year-old girl.
Seattle Times headline “Burien man charged with luring and assault, accused of trying to drag a 14-year-old girl into his pickup.” They completely bury the fact he’s an illegal immigrant from Mexico and has been deported twice before!https://t.co/uYcKaeyQGG via @seattletimes

Esequiel Medina-Vasquez was arrested Thursday night and remains jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail, jail and court records show.
According to the charges:
A 14-year-old girl was walking home from school Wednesday along Southwest 320th Street in Federal Way when she saw a dark pickup drive past her, make a U-turn, and drive past her again, stopping ahead of her at 25th Avenue Southwest. The driver got out of the pickup and approached the girl, gesturing for her to come to him and speaking to her in Spanish, which she didn’t understand.
The girl told the man no and crossed 25th Avenue Southwest, walking in front of his pickup. The man then ran up behind the girl, hooked his arm around her neck and began pulling her toward the open passenger door of his truck. The girl was able to break freeand ran home, where she told her parents what had happened. They called 911. More
The Seattle Times article buries his immigration status at the very end and doesn’t even say he’s in the country illegally, just that he is a Mexican citizen who’s been deported.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the article, you’ll read that Esequiel Medina-Vasquez has been deported several times.
