The case below sounds so familiar to the Mollie Tibbetts case where a predator illegal alien attempts to kidnap a woman. In Mollie’s case, there was a tragic ending. These cases could all be 100% avoidable and Mollie would still be planning her future if we had a wall with border security. This should not be political…it should be an issue that ALL Americans can agree on. The safety and security of our citizens is the #1 duty of a president. The issue of a secure border should be one for all of Congress. Unfortunately, the Democrats have come out as supporters of open borders. The election in November is a decision on whether we have open borders. Please vote Republican!

Bernardo Castro-Gabriel, 22, aka Omar Sanchez is in America illegally and attempted to harm two women. This is a chilling story of what happens with open borders…ANYONE COMES IN!


Police say the incident happened about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday at Gamble Park near the Walker College Campus of Bevill State Community College on Gamble Avenue. The victim, whose name and age aren’t being released, was jogging on the park’s track when police say the suspect – later identified as Castro-Gabriel – grabbed her and pulled her to the ground by her ponytail.

He then dragged her to his car which was parked close to the track, Poe said. “He was dragging her to the car, opened the door and she continued to kick him and broke free and ran away,” the chief said.

The victim ran to another park-goer who called 911. The victim was taken to the emergency room where she was treated for minor injuries.

Poe said Jasper police was on the scene within minutes and obtained a picture of the suspect and vehicle descriptions, which was a small, blue car. “Our patrol units saturated the area,” he said.

Less than two hours later, the suspect vehicle was spotted in downtown Jasper and taken into custody during a traffic stop. Poe said they were able identify Castro-Gabriel as the suspect.


Poe said Castro-Gabriel has been in the U.S. illegally for about five years, four those in Alabama. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been called in and is working to get an immigration detainer on him. Poe said law enforcement has had prior dealings with him, but would not elaborate.

In Jasper, Castro-Gabriel is charged with second-degree attempted kidnapping.  “At some point,” Poe said, “Immigration will take control of him.”


He also is charged by the Walker County Sheriff’s Office with enticing a child for immoral purposes. Police referred questions to the Walker County Sheriff’s Office. Efforts to reach sheriff’s officials for comment were unsuccessful.

Court records state Castro-Gabriel on Wednesday tried to lure a 14-year-old girl into his car on Evans Road. According to the criminal complaint, he did, with lascivious intent, trying to get the girl in his car for sexual purposes.

Walker County Sheriff Jim Underwood said that incident happened while the teen girl was waiting for her friends at a school bus stop. A neighbor saw what was happening and went outside to help the girl. The teen was able to get the suspect’s car tag number, and sheriff’s deputies were already searching for him when they got word of the incident at the park.


Castro-Gabriel went before a judge Friday afternoon where his bond was set at $500,000 on each charge for a $1 million total cash bond.


U.S. Rep Mo Brooks: “It is tragic and infuriating that American citizens in Jasper, Alabama have been the victims of illegal alien crime only days after Mollie Tibbetts was brutally murdered in Iowa,” Brooks said in a prepared statement. “The attempted kidnap of American citizens by an illegal alien from Guatemala highlights our country’s desperate need for the border wall and stronger border enforcement.”

“Far too many Americans have suffered at the hands of illegal aliens who never should have been here,” he said. “These crimes are entirely avoidable with stronger border enforcement, but instead of working to keep Americans safe by eliminating illegal immigration Democrats and open borders advocates shamefully seek to abolish ICE and obstruct Republican attempts to stop the flow of illegal aliens across our border. The callousness displayed by Democrats in light of these horrific crimes against American citizens is appalling and shows Democrats value illegal aliens above American citizens.”
