Teen charged in Md. school assault questioned by border patrol

WASHINGTON — One of two teens charged with raping a girl at a high school in Rockville, Maryland, entered the United States illegally and was questioned by border patrol agents in Texas less than a year ago, according to a spokesman with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Henry Sanchez-Milian, 18, was encountered by a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Rio Grande Valley, Texas, in August 2016. The agent determined that Sanchez-Milian had unlawfully entered the country from Mexico, said ICE spokesman Matthew Bourke.

“Sanchez-Milian was issued a notice to appear in front of an immigration judge, which is currently waiting to be scheduled,” Bourke said in a statement.

Bourke could provide no information about Jose Montano’s status because he is a minor.

Montano, 17, and Sanchez-Milian have been charged with rape for assaulting a 14-year-old girl in a boys bathroom at Rockville High School during school hours on March 16. Both teens were charged as adults.

“I was immediately sick and disgusted when it was reported,” Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett said Monday in a statement. “My deepest condolences go out to this young girl and her family.”
