Vermont Sexual Assault Fugitive Arrested in Bronx, NY

Burlington, VT – The U.S. Marshals Service arrested a fugitive wanted by the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department for Sexual Assault.

Juan Vasquez, 19, was wanted by the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department, on an arrest warrant charging him with Sexual Assault. The arrest warrant was signed in June 21, 2019 with bail set at $100,000.00.

On October 28, 2019 the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department sought the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service in locating and arresting Vasquez, as it was believed that Vasquez fled the state after the assault to avoid prosecution.

During the fugitive investigation, investigators tracked Vasquez to Bronx, NY, where he was arrested without incident. Vasquez will be seen in New York as a fugitive from justice in the coming days.

Vasquez’s arrest was the result of a culmination of investigative efforts by the U.S. Marshals VVOTF (Vermont Violent Offender Tak Force), the U.S. Marshals NY/NJ (New York/New Jersey) Regional Fugitive Task Force and the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department.

Any further inquiries regarding this matter should be directed to the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department.
