EAGLE PASS, Texas — On Friday, Maverick Country Sheriff’s deputies responded to an emergency call in the early morning hours. The deputies arrived at an address on Edison Road and were met by a 73-year-old female resident who reported she was the victim of a sexual assault. The woman told deputies at least three suspected migrants broke into her home around 1:00 a.m., committed burglary, and held her at knife-point while sexually assaulting her.
The woman reportedly told authorities she heard a window break before she found three suspects in the home. The woman, who lives within a mile of the Rio Grande, told authorities she believes the perpetrators were migrants from Central America, based on their accents and appearances.
Deputies report the woman complained about stolen food and money from her purse. The woman was later transported to San Antonio for medical examination and evidence collection.
