SEMMES, AL (WPMI) – Investigators say a suspected undocumented immigrant raped a woman he lived near in Semmes Tuesday.
The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office says the victim’s 12-year-old son walked in on the rape and chased the suspect away.
Felix Briones, 46, was later found in nearby woods. He is charged with first-degree rape.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a hold on him at the jail.
Investigators say Briones lives two doors down from the victim and approached her Tuesday while she was sitting on her front steps.
Investigators say Briones started touching her inappropriately and when she tried to get up and leave, he forced her into the home and raped her.
