U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a convicted child molester who had previously been deported and was attempting to illegally re-enter the U.S.
Eduardo Martinez-Canizal, 38, was arrested around 11:30 a.m. Monday after he crossed into the U.S. illegally near Jacumba in the eastern section of San Diego County.
Martinez-Canizal, a Mexican national, was with another Mexican national when the two men were intercepted by U.S. Border Patrol.
While processing the men, agents said they soon realized Martinez-Canizal had been convicted of fourth degree assault with sexual motivation in Washington state in 2004.
