U.S. Marshals Offer Reward for Fugitive Accused of Sexual Abuse

Des Moines, IA – U.S. Marshals are offering a $2500 reward for information leading to the arrest of Napoleon Mbonyunkiza (aka Mbonyunkiza Napoleon).  The Polk County District Court issued an arrest warrant for Mbonyunkiza on Monday, June 4, 2010 after he failed to appear for a preliminary hearing there on charges of Third-degree Sexual Abuse, Dependant Adult Abuse with Serious Injury, and Neglect or Abandonment of a Dependant Person.  Mbonyunkiza is accused of sexually abusing an adult patient with disabilities while she was in his care at a private care facility in Des Moines. 

The U.S. Marshals-led Southern Iowa Fugitive Task Force (SIFTF) joined the effort to locate and arrest Mbonyunkiza on Monday, June 7, 2010.  The SIFTF is a multi-jurisdictional fugitive task force made up of law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshals, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the Iowa Department of Public Safety, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

Persons are advised to not attempt to detain Mbonyunkiza themselves.  Anyone with information on Mbonyunkiza’s whereabouts can contact U.S. Marshals at (515) 284-6240 or 1-877-WANTED2 (926-8332), Polk County Crimestoppers at (515) 223-1400, or local law enforcement.  Callers can remain confidential.
