A Mexican national wanted by the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office for his connection to the 2009 rape of an elderly woman has been arrested by deputies from the U.S. Marshals Service
According to the sheriff's office, Miguel Oros, 33, of Tabasco, Mexico, was recently apprehended in Cancun, for outstanding warrants from the U.S. Marshals Office. In August 2009, parish officers received a complaint that an 87-year-old woman had been raped. A sheriff's office release said that detectives investigating the complaint were able to obtain evidence relating to the crime, including DNA left behind by the suspect. After DNA analysis, detectives learned that the suspect was Oros. Detectives learned that Oros was a resident of Mexico and then requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Office Violent Offender Task Force. According to the release, it is with the assistance of the task force that Oros was taken into custody. Oros is currently in Mississippi, where he faces additional charges. He will then be extradited to Iberia Parish, where he will face charges relating to aggravated rape.
