Illegal Immigrant Charged for Two Brutal Assaults

Fabio Hernandez Cuellar

And from rape to attempted rape, also on San Pedro, Police have arrested and arraigned a teenage male after he was positively identified by two of his victims. Salvadoran Fabio Hernandez Cuellar, an eighteen year old construction worker, is suspected to have brutally beaten a seventy year old woman as she walked home on the island several weeks ago. It is also believed that Hernandez intended to rape the woman. While he escaped detection for that crime, he allegedly tried it again last week and this time he was detained by Police.

“Have police been able to determine if he is an illegal immigrant?”


On the Phone: Insp. Henry Jemott

“He is an illegal immigrant; he has no documentation so as a result of that we are also having the immigration be a part of the investigation.”


We note that both crimes were very violent, and in the second instance the alleged perpetrator threw the victim’s child into the bushes before starting to beat her.

    Do all of these people really have Hernandez as a surname or is it a misprint? I’m also wondering why the name of a rape victim was printed. It doesn’t seem proper to print a victim of a sexual assault’s name unless she gives some kind of permission.
