Three Guatemalan criminal aliens were arrested yesterday in Lynn, Mass., by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The three are wanted by Guatemalan authorities for the rape and murder of a female.

The three arrested were residing in Lynn, and included 25-year-old Danilo Candelario De Leon-Robles. Two other 21-year-old males were also arrested in connection with the rape and murder. An Interpol Red Notice had been issued for the arrest of De Leon-Robles. Two of the individuals are also wanted on other charges in Guatemala.

On Nov. 26, 2006, in the Los Puentes area of San Antonio Serchil in Guatemala, the three men allegedly attacked Herlinda Elizabeth Lopez Lopez in a deserted area. They held her by the neck and then beat, raped and strangled her to death. The three individuals have been charged by Guatemalan authorities.

Interpol Washington, U.S. National Central Bureau, working collaboratively with ICE, was able to determine that two of the three individuals have a previous criminal history in Massachusetts.

Last night, ICE officers arrested all three individuals. They are now in ICE custody pending removal proceedings.
