PITTSBORO, NC – Last week, Alejandro Jacobo-Marcos was extradited from California, following an investigation into a string of child sexual assaults that took place in 1999.
In March 2021, two victims spoke to Pittsboro Police detectives and helped break the cold case.
Without giving too many details on the suspect's relationship to the two women (who were minors at the time of the assaults), Police Chief Clarence 'Shorty' Johnson Jr. stated: “Jacobo-Marcos was known to the victims.”
The Chatham News & Record reported:
Since then, Jacobo-Marcos moved to California. Detective Delaine Womach of the Pittsboro Police Department contacted authorities in Riverside County, California, who cooperated in the inter-departmental search and eventually located Jacobo-Marcos.
“After Detective Womack secured warrants in the case,” Johnson said, “the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office detained and held Jacobo-Marcos until he was extradited back to North Carolina.”
Jacobo-Marcos has been charged with 31 counts of indecent liberties with a minor, 16 counts of first-degree sex offense with a child, six counts of sexual battery and one count of first-degree kidnapping. He is currently being held on $1 million bond at the Chatham County Jail.
His next court appearance is set for August 6.
*The illegal alien likely has many more victims, and the investigation is ongoing.
