More Senseless Tragedy
Unfortunately, this is not the first story we have published on a heinous crime committed by an illegal immigrant–but it is the most heartbreaking. Two women were stabbed in Nassau County recently, and a 2-year-old girl was beaten and sexually assaulted. One of the stabbing victims was the girl’s mother.
31year-old Tommy Vladim Alvarado-Ventura, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, has been arrested and charged with the crimes. Alvarado-Ventura is a violent MS-13 gang member who has been deported four times in the last five years and has a long criminal history.
From ABC 7:
Authorities say the 2-year-old was heard crying as Alvarado-Ventura left the residence at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, before he apparently headed to El Mariachi Loco bar on Fulton Avenue. There, he allegedly got into a fight around 2:20 a.m. that police say was unprovoked, and with a female, he did not know.
The 24-year-old woman with whom he was fighting reportedly tried to leave the bar, but police said he began punching and kicking her in the parking lot before stabbing her multiple times and slicing the inside of her mouth.
Nassau County Police Commissioner, Thomas Krumpter, said this was an incredibly…
“This is, in 28 years, probably the most heinous criminal act I’ve ever seen, and it really is nauseating,” he said. “It doesn’t usually affect us like that in law enforcement, but in this particular case, it’s unprecedented.”
The suspect returned home after stabbing the first woman, where he proceeded to beat and stab the mother of the 2-year old. The woman reportedly confronted Alvarado-Ventura about the “serious injuries” to her daughter. The child’s injuries were so severe they required several hours of surgery.
The mother was finally able to escape with the children and call the police. Alvarado-Ventura is charged with predatory sexual assault of a child, attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. He is being held without bail.
