Federal Arrest for an El Paso Man for Assaulting a Federal Officer with a Dangerous Weapon
On October 14, 2020, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, assisted by Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo Tribal Police Department, executed a federal arrest warrant for an El Paso man that allegedly assaulted a federal officer.
In El Paso, Texas, 40-year-old Hilario Cadena was arrested for allegedly assaulting a federal officer located on the Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo Tribal Reservation.
On August 25, 2020, officers of the Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo Tribal Police Department responded to a disturbance in front of the Speaking Rock Entertainment Center. When officers tried to intervene in the disturbance, Cadena resisted detention and displayed a large rock that could have been used to seriously hurt the officers.
Cadena has been charged with 1 count of 18 U.S.C. 111 (a) and (b) Assault on a Federal Officer with a Dangerous Weapon.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation El Paso Division and Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo Tribal Police Department investigated this case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Mangels is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government.
It is important to note that an indictment is merely a charge and should not be considered as evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
