Gomez-Gonzalez picked up the friend in Montgomery County, Md. on Sept. 10 to go to dinner, according to charging documents obtained by Fox5DC.

After dinner, the pair purchased a bottle of Hennessey and drove to a park in Gaithersburg where Gomez-Gonzalez allegedly sexually assaulted the heavily-intoxicated woman in the back seat of his car. He allegedly tried pulling off her pants and made unwanted sexual advances.

He then allegedly took the woman to his home and sexually assaulted her again, authorities said. The woman told police she woke up the next morning in his home with “intense” vaginal pain and bleeding.

Immigration and Custome Enforcement (ICE) told the station an immigration detainer hold was filed with Montgomery County authorities on Sept. 12.

Gomez-Gonzalez is being held in the Montgomery County Detention Center on $100,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled Oct. 11.

He reportedly worked for a plumbing and heating company, WJLA-TV reported. The company told the station it verifies the immigration status of its employees. The station reported Gomez-Gonzalez also has numerous traffic violations.

New York music executive accused of molesting neighbor, stealing panties

A New York music executive was charged with three counts of burglary and one count of sexual abuse after he allegedly snuck into a woman’s apartment and molested her before stealing several pairs of her panties.

Adam Lublin, 43, was arraigned Monday in Manhattan Criminal Court and released on $175,000 bond.

The 23-year-old accuser said she awoke to find a man standing over and molesting her last Tuesday in her apartment in a luxury tower in Lower Manhattan’s Battery Park City, according to reports by the New York Post.

She later was able to ID the suspect with the help of her doorman, who reviewed building surveillance footage and identified him as “Adam,” cops said.

NEW YORK POLICE INVESTIGATING AFTER FINDING ABANDONED BOY, BODIES IN BURNED OUT VEHICLE

When police responded to the scene and knocked on his apartment door, they did not receive an answer.

Investigators said they staked out the building Wednesday and saw Lublin leaving with a cup and flamingo straw. When police nabbed him, he threw the cup in the bushes, but investigators recovered it and it allegedly contained several pairs of panties that the accuser said belonged to her, along with the straw.

Prosecutors said “additional pairs of women’s underwear” also turned up in a search of Lublin’s apartment Sunday.

“One of the backbones in our legal system is the presumption of innocence,” Lublin’s lawyer, Scott Leemon, told local media. “Adam will rely on that presumption of innocence.”

Prosecutors were confident they had a “strong case,” revealing to Judge Anne Swern that Lublin also was linked to a similar incident involving the accuser’s roommate, who said she was attacked in a similar manner last week.

“About a week ago, the victim’s roommate woke up in the middle of the night and saw a man hovering over her,” Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Clerkin said Monday in court.

“Then on Saturday night, the victim went to bed in her apartment, didn’t lock her apartment door and awoke around 5 a.m. to a white man with dark hair, heavyset, leaning over her bed and touching her vagina.”

Swern issued an order of protection for both women and ordered Lublin to avoid contact with them if he saw them in the building.

Lublin, who previously worked at a sports and live entertainment company, has been photographed with hip-hop artists at a slew of parties in New York City.

A deputy bloodhound followed the scent of a missing Florida three-year-old, leading authorities to the boy in fewer than thirty minutes, police said.

The boy, identified only as Aedric, was being watched by his grandmother Sunday in Pace, near Pensacola, when she briefly took her eyes off of him to use the restroom, the boy’s mother said at a press conference. While Aedric was unsupervised, the child wandered out of the front door and into the woods near his home.

After police searched for two hours, the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s office decided to release their bloodhound, which they’ve had for about a year.

The dog led authorities to the boy in about 28 minutes, deputies said during the news conference. They said the boy had a few bug bites and minor scratches but was otherwise uninjured. The woods where the boy was found were so thick police needed a machete to reach him. He was found about 200 yards from his home.

“The most terrifying words a mother can get on the phone is ‘your child is missing, get home right now,” said the boy’s mother Audra Hughes, who was working when Aedric went missing. “And then a couple hours later, the best news I’ve ever heard in my life. ‘We found your kid.’”

Hughes added that much of her neighborhood was out trying to help in the search.

FBI looking for ‘Mummy Marauder’ in Friday the 13th bank robbery

The FBI is looking for a suspected Houston-area bank robber dubbed the “Mummy Marauder” because of the white gauze covering his face during a Friday the 13th caper.

The suspect entered a First Convenience Bank branch at around 11:30 a.m. wearing a baseball cap, dreadlock wig, sunglasses and white gauze covering his face and right hand.

He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and got into a black Mitsubishi Montero SUV being driven by someone else.

“It’s a little early for Halloween,” FBI spokesman Connor Hagen told Fox News. “This guy did go into a regular business … he terrorized the tellers, and these were people going about their everyday business.”

Police: Delaware shooting suspect released because of ‘communication error’

A man arrested in connection with a fatal shooting was accidentally released from police custody in Delaware, authorities said Tuesday.

Dion Williams, 27, is wanted for assault, reckless endangerment and gun charges stemming from a June 1 shooting that left 31-year-old Julius Johnson dead. The pair got into an argument in a salon just before shots rang out.

Johnson died from his injuries July 5, authorities said in a news release.

A nearly naked man was recorded on video early Tuesday running after a school bus in the middle of a California freeway and trying to force his way in.

The bizarre incident took place on Interstate 5 in Newhall, about an hour’s drive north of Los Angeles. The unidentified man could be seen pounding on the bus windows as it sat in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

“The guy started getting closer and closer,” the driver later told Los Angeles’ Fox 11. “I have no idea why he approached us. Everything was locked because we were driving. We never opened the door.”

The bus had just dropped students off at school and was carrying other drivers heading back to the bus yard, according to the station.

The freeway was briefly shut down while authorities detained the suspect, officials said.

Shortly before the freeway incident, the suspect was captured on surveillance video breaking into the Newhall Church of Nazarene.

The church’s pastor, Josh Johnson, told Fox 11 the suspect was “out of his mind” and yelling. He said the suspect vandalized church property before fleeing the scene and running onto the interstate.

The suspect is charged with one count of felony vandalism, Fox 11 reported. He reportedly has a past conviction for attempted carjacking.

Triple threat storm systems form, expected to impact Texas, Bermuda with rainfall, winds

A trio of storm systems were brewing in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday, with one preparing to dump heavy rain in parts of Texas and Louisiana in the coming days.

Tropical Storm Imelda was upgraded from a depression Tuesday afternoon and made landfall in Freeport, Texas around 1 p.m. with 40 mph winds. Threats from the storm include heavy rainfall and flooding in the Houston area, said Jeff Lindner, a meteorologist for the Harris County Flood Control District.

Imelda could bring up to 18 inches of rain to parts of southeastern parts of the state. Parts of Houston and Galveston had received two to three inches by Tuesday morning.

HURRICANE DORIAN DEATH TOLL RISES TO 7 IN THE BAHAMAS, US MONITORS STORM’S PATH

Lindner said because the ground is dry, initial parts of the rainfall should go toward “saturating the ground,” though the potential for flooding remains a concern. The Houston metro area is vulnerable to flooding.

More than six inches of rain is expected to fall in the city in the next few days, although some areas could see more than a foot. A tropical storm warning was posted for Sargent to Port Bolivar along Texas’ coast, and includes Galveston, The Washington Post reported.

“The difference of just a few miles could be the difference of several inches of rain,” the National Weather Service wrote.

Gov. Greg Abbott has placed resources on standby across the state. The Texas Division of Emergency Management will be rostering four boat squads in coastal areas. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will be moving boats to support the Beaumont area and adjacent regions.

In the Atlantic, the third hurricane of the season is expected to strengthen as it continues to make its way toward Bermuda. Hurricane Humberto, a Category 2 storm, is expected to clip the British island territory.

“Humberto is expected to become a major hurricane by [Tuesday night] or Wednesday morning,” the National Hurricane Center said.

HUMBERTO STRENGTHENS INTO HURRICANE, MAY BRING HEAVY RAIN TO BERMUDA

Bermudian officials have issued a hurricane watch and tropical storm warning. It’s expected to bring tropical-force winds along with several inches of rain.

Humberto is expected to move east-northeast through Thursday with an increase in speed. Large swells generated by the hurricane are expected to increase along Bermuda’s coast by Wednesday.

While the storm is not threatening the U.S. mainland, it’s still creating some dangers for beachgoers. Large swells are forecast to affect the Southeast coast from east-central Florida to North Carolina over the next couple of days.

A new tropical depression was announced Tuesday in the Atlantic between the Leeward Islands and Cape Verde, the Post reported. It’s likely to become a storm by Tuesday evening, according to the NHC.

It is then expected to move west and become a hurricane by Friday morning.

Forecasters believe it will come close to Puerto Rico before moving out to sea by the weekend. If it’s upgraded to a storm, it will be named Jerry.

Illegal immigrant involved in crash that killed Indianapolis Colts’ Edwin Jackson gets additional prison time

A Guatemalan national who was convicted of causing a crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver was slapped with an additional 42-month jail sentence Tuesday for reentering the U.S. after he had been previously deported.

Chief U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson ordered Manuel Orrego-Zavala to serve his sentence consecutive to his sentence of 16 years in state prison at the request of prosecutor William McCoskey, who said it would “send a strong message to the defendant and others similarly situated that we are a nation of laws and that there are real consequences that come from violating those laws.”

REP. MATT GAETZ: TRUMP CRACKDOWN ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION SUCCESSDING – AMERICA BENEFITS

Orrego-Zavala, 38, was in the U.S. illegally for the third time in February 2018 when he struck 26-year-old Jackson and his 54-year-old Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe, who had pulled over and were standing on the shoulder of I-70 in Indianapolis. Orrego-Zavala was driving a pickup truck and had a blood-alcohol level of more than twice the legal limit. The two victims were stopped on the highway because Jackson said he wasn’t feeling well and needed Monroe to pull over.

Orrego-Zavala pled guilty to causing death while operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol in July 2018 and was given the maximum sentence of 16 years in prison. He had previously been convicted of two drug felonies in California and was deported in 2007. Authorities found him illegally in the U.S. again in May 2009 and deported him for a second time, according to court records.

“Mr. Orrego-Zavala re-entered the country illegally for the second time before he put the public safety of Indianapolis at risk and took the lives of two innocent men on February 4, 2018,” U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler said in a press release. “This prosecution represents our office’s commitment to charging aliens that illegally re-enter the country, especially if they are a risk to public safety or there is a criminal history present.”

Minneapolis robberies ‘unacceptable,’ police chief says: ‘Has to be consequences’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6087117830001_6087116212001-vs Minneapolis robberies ‘unacceptable,’ police chief says: ‘Has to be consequences’ Matt Finn fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc article 86e1937b-16e3-5e2b-82d5-f8cb90ae0a8c

Minneapolis police report 20 people have been arrested, 18 of them charged, in connection with two brutal mob-style robberies caught on tape in viral videos.

The suspects range in age from 15 to 27 and were charged with various counts of robbery relating to two vicious robberies in August in which mobs surrounded young men and beat them unconscious. Some suspects were charged with first-degree felony robbery, which carries up to 20 years in prison.

Police told Fox News mobs targeted “vulnerable” victims for valuables like cell phones.

Brendan O’Brien, 24, told Fox News he was out celebrating his birthday in Minneapolis when he was surrounded by one of the mobs and then beaten. The video appears to show O’Brien clinging to his belongings until he finally was knocked out.

VIDEOS OF MINNEAPOLIS ROBBERIES, MOB-STYLE BEATINGS GO VIRAL

“I didn’t realize how hard I’d been kicked in the face. It was much more brutal than I thought it was going to be. I assumed that they hit me a couple of times and I gave up and they went on their way but I was knocked unconscious,” O’Brien told Fox News.

O’Brien says he suffered a concussion and injuries all over his body. He now has trouble with memory, sleeping and has a sense of fear.

“I don’t feel as safe as I used to. I think that’s the best way of putting it is that something like this kind of takes a part away from you and I don’t know if I’m gonna’ get that back,” O’Brien said.

Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo told Fox News the attacks seen in the videos are abhorrent.

“It is truly unacceptable for me as chief and it’s unacceptable for our Minneapolitans,” Arradondo said. “No one wants to tolerate that type of criminal behavior.”

Police told Fox News a team of investigators worked for three weeks in partnership with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department to track down the assailants.

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICER SHORTAGE REACHING CRISIS LEVEL

“There has to be consequences for your actions,” Arradondo told Fox News. “I don’t want there to be a small group of people that feel that they can go unchallenged, unchecked.”

The videos appear to show groups of black men beating white males but Minneapolis police told Fox News the attacks do not qualify as hate crimes because the attackers didn’t target their victims for class or race. Rather, they were targeted because they were “impaired” or “compromised.”

The videos are emerging as Arradondo said his office is dealing with a crippling police shortage. He has requested a staggering 400 additional officers by 2025. But he said he has to convince an entire city council made up of some members that don’t want to add a single officer to the force.

“I’m going to continue to make the case and hopefully we’ll continue to get the resources that we need to help support the men and women who are doing this job,” Arradondo told Fox News.

So far, Mayor Jacob Frey has proposed 14 additional officers.

The public safety committee chair, Alondra Cano, told Fox News that the city council is now considering adding up to 30 or 40 additional officers to the force. However, the final number won’t be decided until a budget is passed in December.

Cano said a beefed-up police department might have been able to prevent or quickly solve the violent robberies seen on video.

“It was really concerning to me to see those videos and that’s not what I want people to feel Minneapolis is like or about,” Cano said. “We probably could have been able to connect some of these robberies together at an earlier time if we had more support and officers for our investigations unit.”

Cano told Fox News the city is investing in and diversifying its force to better represent the community along with investing in juvenile crime prevention programs.
