Illegal Alien, Lorenzo Perechu-Tziquin Pleads Guilty to Assaulting Federal Officer

A 33-year-old man from Guatemala has entered a guilty plea to assaulting a Border Patrol (BP) agent and for illegally entering the country, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

In the early morning hours of March 27, 2019, authorities encounters Lorenzo Perechu-Tziquin and others attempting to circumvent the U.S. BP Checkpoint near Falfurrias. The majority of the group complied with commands. However, Perechu-Tziquin, in an effort to prevent arrest, shoved and kicked a BP agent multiple times in the chest area through a barb-wire fence. In the course of the struggle, he caused multiple lacerations to the agent’s hands and arms, which required medical attention.

Perechu-Tziquin was eventually subdued and apprehended with the assistance of another BP agent.

Perechu-Tziquin was previously convicted of illegal entry into the United States in August 2018 and subsequently deported.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Sept.18, 2019, before U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos. At that time, Perechu-Tziquin faces up to 20 years for each count as well as a possible $250,000 maximum fine. He has been and will remain in custody pending that hearing.

The FBI and BP conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Yifei Zheng is prosecuting the case.
