US Customs and Border Protection at the Hidalgo International Bridge arrested a Mexican man, who was allegedly involved in a five-year-old sexual assault case.

Fidel Ortiz Serna is a Mexican national who lived in Louisiana under a lawful permanent resident status, reported Fox News.

"On Monday, CBP officers at the Hidalgo International Bridge arrested a Mexican national lawful permanent resident from Louisiana after discovering he had an outstanding arrest warrant for sexual assault charges filed in 2016," a tweet read on behalf of CBP.

Before being stopped by CBP for a routine check, Serna crossed the Hidalgo International Bridge. A computer scan found that he was a possible suspect related to sexual assault charges filed in Louisiana in 2016. A biometric verification through US law enforcement and CBP databases helped in the confirmation of his identity.

An outstanding warrant issued from the Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana years ago was also discovered. "Our officers detected this fugitive wanted on sexual assault charges who had been on the run for a few years," Hidalgo Port Director Carlos Rodriguez said in a statement.

"This capture can hopefully bring closure to this case and those affected by the alleged actions."

Serna was charged with one felony count of carnal knowledge of a juvenile in connection with an alleged 2007 incident in Chalmette, Louisiana. It involved a 15-year-old victim.

After getting held by CBP, he was handed over to local authorities and moved to Hidalgo County jail "where he will await extradition procedures."

In a separate incident, a California man was arrested last week for allegedly sexually assaulting an Asian woman.

Police said that Alexander Lomax, who is a 28-year-old from Hayward, beat and assaulted a 67-year-old Asian woman in the front yard of a house in the Bay Area. When police reached the scene, they found Lomax "completely nude and still sexually assaulting the victim." The woman, who suffered facial injuries and broken bones, was taken to a trauma center.

Lomax was transported to Santa Rita Jail. He was charged with rape, kidnapping with the intent to commit sodomy, assault with the intent to commit rape, sexual battery by restraint, assault with a deadly weapon with great bodily injury and elder abuse with injuries charges. He was later linked to two other assaults involving a 57-year-old Asian woman and a 75-year-old white woman, Fremont police told ABC News.

In connection to the 57-year-old victim, Lomax was charged with assault with intent to commit rape. He was also charged with sexual battery by restraint and false imprisonment linked to the 75-year-old victim.
