Border Patrol Agents Arrest Illegal Alien Wanted for Rape by Instrumentation and Sexual Battery

Release Date

Ogdensburg, N.Y. - On Sunday, October 18, U.S. Border Patrol Agents encountered Nam Huu Nguyen, 46, a Vietnam national following a vehicle stop near Ogdensburg. Nguyen was found to have an extraditable felony warrant in Oklahoma for Rape by Instrumentation and Sexual Battery.  

Agents also determined Nguyen was not in possession of any immigration documents or status that would legally allow him to be in, or remain in the United States. Furthermore, Nguyen was found to have been ordered removed by an Immigration Judge in 2012.

“This arrest is another great example of the hard work Border Patrol agents do every day to make communities safer as well as secure our nation’s border” said Ogdensburg Station Patrol Agent in Charge Timothy Morgan.

Border Patrol contacted the District Court of Payne County in Oklahoma who will extradite Nguyen based on the warrant of arrest. 

The Swanton Sector is responsible for securing the land border between ports of entry in Vermont, New Hampshire and northeastern New York. The coordination with assistance of citizens is invaluable to the Border Patrol's border security mission and we welcome community members' help to keep our nation’s borders safe. Please report suspicious activity at 1-800-689-3362.

For more on Customs and Border Protection’s mission at our nation’s ports of entry with CBP officers and along U.S. borders with Border Patrol agents, please visit the Border Security section of the CBP website.
