The federal government has arrested a 24-year-old illegal immigrant after he kidnapped a teen girl from her birthday party and raped her.
Andres Castaneda-Guzman, a Mexican national in the United States illegally, has pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping a minor and transporting her across state lines for unlawful sexual activity.
His victim was merely 15, and Castaneda-Guzman had allegedly pursued her for weeks. Authorities have not revealed the girl’s identity. She is reportedly a distant relative of Castaneda-Guzman and turned down his advances. However, Castaneda-Guzman continued to act “jealous and possessive” towards her.
At the girl’s birthday party on September 2, where Castaneda-Guzman was a guest, he offered to drive his victim to meet invited guests who had gotten lost. The girl’s parents searched for their daughter and reported her missing later that night.
