A Mexican national who was previously accused of raping his teenage daughter was caught illegally entering the U.S. at the Texas border on Tuesday, WKRN-TV reported.

Border agents found Rusbel Zamorano-Calderon, 39, near the Ysleta Port of Entry, approximately 14 km south of El Paso. The agents said they caught up with Zamorano-Calderon, who was among a group of people, according to a press release.

After taking him into custody, agents discovered Zamorano-Calderon was previously deported and had a prison sentence for three counts of rape of his 15-year-old daughter in Polk County, Tennessee.

A release said agents found a restraining order in place to protect Zamorano-Calderon’s daughter.

“This most recent arrest serves as a good example of the importance of maintaining vigilance along the borders of our country, and the important role of the Border Patrol Agents play in helping our communities safe,” said a Border Patrol spokesman in a press release, cited by KTSM-TV.

Authorities said Zamorano-Calderon is in the custody of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office awaiting extradition to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office to face the charges.
