STERLING, Va. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at Washington Dulles International Airport arrested a U.S. citizen Saturday who was wanted by the Hamilton County, Ind., Police Department for sexual assault.

Muhamed Dugonjic, 39, of Phoenix, arrived on a flight from Denmark. CBP officers determined Dugonjic to be subject to the Hamilton County arrest warrant. The officers verified the validity of the warrant and confirmed extradition. Dugonjic was arrested by CBP and turned over to Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority police for extradition.

“The United States is a welcoming nation however; CBP remains ever vigilant in intercepting those travelers that our laws identify as needing further scrutiny,” said Frances B. Garcia, Acting CBP Port Director for the Port of Washington Dulles.

CBP conducts inspection operations and intercepts currency, weapons, prohibited agriculture products or other illicit items, and on average arrests 22 wanted persons a day at U. S. Ports of entry nationwide.
