NORTH SALEM — A Brewster man was charged with the attempted rape of a woman he knew at an undisclosed location in town, state police said Wednesday.
Francisco Borja Guerra, 44, of 52 Marvin Ave. was charged about 9 p.m. Tuesday with attempted first-degree rape, a felony, police said.
The alleged incident took place Saturday. The victim was a 21-year-old woman who Guerra knew, police said. Police began investigating Monday.
Guerra was arraigned before Town Justice Ralph Mackin, who sent him to the Westchester County jail without bail. Once Guerra arrived at jail, a federal immigration detainer warrant was placed on him because he is suspected of being in the country illegally. His country of origin was not immediately available.[Emphasis added]
Guerra is due back in Town Court Monday.
For headline purposes, Guerra should not so much be a “Brewster Man” as a Hispanic Illegal Alien. (You see how, even when they tell you he is an illegal, they don't use the "slur" illegal alien.)
By the way, reporter Terence Corcoran [Email him] with his Lower Hudson Valley local knowlege, should be able to guess Guerra's country of origin at least as well as I can using Wikipedia. The formerly bucolic village of Brewster had, at the 2010 Census,
the highest concentration of Guatemalans in the US, comprising 38.16% of the village population.
