Diego Mata Sánchez, a 46-year-old Costa Rican citizen is wanted in this country for allegedly raping a 3-year-old child in 2001, the Star-Advertiser reported. Mata was arrested Friday night by U.S. Marshals and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, according to the Star-Advertiser report. Mata is being held by ICE until deportation can be arranged because he was in the United States illegally.
