Border Patrol agents stationed in the Yuma Sector announced that they had arrested a child rapist who was attempting to illegally enter the country on Monday.

During a routine background check it was found that the pedophile had felony convictions for first-degree child rape and incest.

Fox News reports: Chris T. Clem, the sector’s chief patrol agent, tweeted that Edgar Antonio Gutierrez-Martinez has been turned over to U.S. Marshals to face prosecution. He posted a photo of the suspect in the backseat of a van. Border Patrol did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.

CBS 13 reported that agents encountered Gutierrez-Martinez on Monday and learned about the convictions during a background check. 

The arrest underscores the safety concerns at the border during the surge in migration.

Border Patrol agents in Texas arrested a number of criminal illegal immigrants coming into the U.S. in the last week, including sex offenders with prior convictions and an MS-13 gang member.
