A man on Texas’ list of 10 most wanted fugitives was captured in Mexico on Wednesday, over a year after he bonded out of jail and fled, authorities said. 

Jose Manuel Hernandez, 31, was located and arrested in Monterrey, Mexico, by Mexican federal authorities, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) said.

Hernandez was transported to the Juarez-Lincoln Port of Entry in Laredo, Texas, and turned over to the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast and Lone Star Fugitive Task Forces and DPS Special Agents.

In March 2021, Hernandez was arrested by the Pecos Police Department in Texas for two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. He subsequently bonded out and fled to Mexico.
