After Ten-Day Hunt Hebron Child Sex Assaulter Found Hiding Under Bed in Ames, Iowa

A press release from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office:


Following a 10-day manhunt, Esau Ancheyta Hernandez, 26, was apprehended Monday morning hiding under a bed in an apartment in Ames, Iowa, after information developed by investigators in the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office pinpointed his location.

Officers from the U.S. Marshal’s Southern Iowa Fugitive Task Force acted on the information provided by MCSO at about 9:30 a.m., forcing open a locked bedroom door and locating the fugitive under a bed.

He was taken into custody without further incident.

Hernandez faces Illinois charges of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a Child, a Class X offense, for an incident in Hebron on Oct. 13.

“We expect to see this man face his charges here in the county once the extradition process has concluded,” said McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim. “We have been at great pains to locate him since the incident occurred.”

Currently being held at the Story County Jail in Iowa, Hernandez, a Mexican national, was previously deported from the U.S. in 2012 after being apprehended in southern California.

In the Hebron incident, deputies responding to a 911 call were told that Hernandez had sexually assaulted a child at that residence and, after being confronted by family members, fled on foot from the scene.

A large multi-jurisdictional search followed, deploying multiple K-9’s, drones, and a helicopter, in the area of Hebron Road and the Illinois/Wisconsin State Line, but Hernandez was not located until Monday.

  1. Hiding under a bed?

    How apropos.

    Isn’t this what little children do to hide from monsters?

    What does this mean?

  2. Just another poor misunderstood Dreamer in RINO Rauner’s Sanctuary State of Illinois.

    Good work, Sheriff Prim !

  3. God bless all immigrants and all nations. Abolish the gop…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  4. Impressive!

    Prim can catch em, even when they hide under a bed in another State.

  5. Let our resident blog pest Angel R. bail him out, and let him live at his home till trial?

    Maybe they can have another walk for the misunderstood illegals in the McHenry County lock-up?

    Ridiculous situation.

  6. Attention Sheriff Primm…….good job well done…..

    Now who helped this pervert get to Ames Iowa?

    ….I know he didn’t walk.

    …please pursue this and charge all who helped him,with aiding and abetting …also a reward should be given to whoever turned him in..

    it appears to be a great co-coordinated effort ….

    you have my vote

  7. We have goofballs, useful idiots and morons who are citizens of the U.S. right here in McHenry County who have compassion for illegal aliens.

    These goofballs have swallowed the kool-aid of the mostly leftist media and many, many Democrat politicians who want to give sanctuary to the illegals.

    They are the ones who voted for Hillary Clinton, the top Democrat politician that wants open borders.

    Sadly, the Gov of Illinois has joined their ranks.

  8. tom? From what you post on this blog – you are no Christian. You are a moron. Repentence and opening your heart to the truth that God shows you would be requisites.

  9. My God, this gang is as ignorant as they are racist.

    This guy had nothing to do with DACA, just like condemning immigrants had nothing to do with Christ.

  10. Thank The Lord that I have Tin Foil Hat Cindy to lead me to the Christian Path of salvation.

  11. Gun clinging Jesus is my savior…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  12. He was previously deported and came back to molest a child.

    Angel, your gun toting Jesus (you mean Hay-Zus, right?) should have shot him when he was climbing back over the fence.

  13. Is he one of Obama’s Dreamers or one of Rauner’s Trustees?

  14. Wonder if Carlos Acosta will be lighting candles for this child rapist?

  15. Charlie, I was thinking the same thing, but I also wonder about our Fallen Angel.
