Two U.S. Citizen Murder Suspects Caught Attempting to Enter Mexico

SAN YSIDRO – Two U.S. citizens were arrested while trying to cross into Mexico through the border at the San Ysidro port of entry Customs officials said.

When crossing on May 18, 2017, at around 2:40 p.m. Luis Matus-Dominguez, 19, and Abraham Manuel Torres-Leal, 21, the two were escorted to the San Ysidro Port of Entry Pedestrian West Crossing by Mexican authorities. Both men were detained and escorted for processing. Customs Border Patrol learned through the “Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System” (IAFIS) learned that the two were wanted by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Office for a homicide and an attempted homicide which carried a $2 million bail each.

The two were suspected of an April 1, 2017, murder of  a 26-year-old Angel Sanabria, and injuring a 29-year-old man. The two were at a barbecue at around 7:00 p.m. in the 3200 block of 44th Street in City Heights. The two victims were taken away in a private vehicle while the shooters fled the scene.  Sanbria suffered several gunshot wounds and died as a result of his injuries at a trauma center and the other man was treated at a different hospital for a gunshot wound. Investigations led to suspect information, but the suspects were nowhere to be found.

“Working with Mexican law enforcement counterparts is essential at times and these apprehensions demonstrate a mutual goal to keep the communities safe,” said Pete Flores, director of field operations for CBP in San Diego. “This partnership resulted in the capture of men who will soon face justice for the alleged crimes they committed.” Both men were turned over to the San Diego Police Department.
