Man Suspected in More Attempted Abductions

— Police are looking into the possibility that a man charged in three reports of attempted kidnappings is linked to several other abduction attempts.

Fredy Humberto Pacheco, 36, of 901 Chalk Level Road, faces two counts of attempted kidnapping and one count of resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer. He is being held in the Durham County Jail on a $1.25 million bond.

An 11-year-old girl reported she was the victim of two attempts – occurring in the past two weeks – near Landon and Hardee streets while she was going to school, police said.

In both attempts, a man driving a bright red car pulled up to the girl and told her to get in the vehicle with him, police said. The girl refused and ran away.

A 15-year-old girl then came forward describing a similar experience, police said.

Now, police in Raleigh and Durham and as far away as Gastonia are looking at attempted abduction cases involving as many as six victims and dating back to 2006 for similarities with the three recent reports.

Pacheco surrendered to police after investigators located a car last week at a shopping center near Miami Boulevard and Holloway Street that they identified as the vehicle described by the two girls. The car had a decorative plate on the front that read “Fear This.”

Federal immigration agents have placed a detainer on Pacheco so that he won't be released on bond because they think he might be in the country illegally.

    Eduardo1 - First, he is an illegal alien who probably has a felony record in Mexico for raping little children.

    Second - he is here, ILLEGALLY and is attempting to kidnap children, and since they are all females - probably rape them and then kill them.

    This has nothing to do with the Bush administration since the illegal flow has been going on for the last 30 years.

    This is what your DEMOCRATS want to give amnesty to folks - so while you say the majority - tell me which ones are not felons.

    With this many attempts known about, I can't help but wonder about the possible successes he may have had. I barely escaped from two men trying to kidnap me when I was 15. They were never found that I know of. That is something I'll never forget and my heart goes out to these kids.

    "Send him back"? Even if he doesn't return here, no children anywhere should have to worry about him again if he is indeed guilty. Anyone who preys upon children should NEVER have a chance to do it again. Such monsters have no right to live in this world imo. Especially not at the expense of law abiding tax payers.

    "Terrorist? Why? So we can torture him?"

    So he will be tried at a higher level and sentenced at a higher level. He came into our country illegally and proceeded to terrorize our citizens. Before you say, "what about people who are citizens who do similar?" I will say (and I always have) that predators who prey on children should be punished to the extremest level (more extreme than is currently practiced). I would frankly like to see them ALL treated as terrorists as well b/c they are in fact terrorizing their victims.

    We are seeing an increase of crime committed by illegal aliens because they are flooding to NC as other states crack down. Such a shame. Officials at every level need to enforce the laws and stop ignoring a dire situation.

  • onpointe Feb 26, 2008

    States to the north and south of us as well as others all over the country are starting to enforce the laws on the books and the illegals are leaving on their own. Unfortunately, North Carolina is where many of them are headed. Our elected officials must step up to the plate and start helping us here. The illegal population is pouring out of Arizona due to workplace enforcement .

    "Illegals found to have committed a sex or violent crime that were deported and return to commit another crime should face a MANDATORY LIFE sentence."

    I was thinking of something a bit harsher, but won't post it here - they wouldn't let me anyway.

    Praying for his victims and for his family.

    God bless.

    You see Eduardo, That is our right in this country speak out against what we feel is an injustice, breaking the law and then asking for amnesty is one of these injustices. Go ask the millions waiting to come into this country the right way how they feel. I can promise you you will not like the answer. Legals citizens have rights, illegal Aliens do not. And the fact that these criminals kill these citizens, rape and murder these honest citizens, prey on helpless childeren and you want us to not raise our voices, we will raise our voices ever so loudly this coming elections and these criminals will be on notice that the free ride is over and the criminals, WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING and the time is now.

    "I CAN NOT BELIEVE MY FELLOW GOLO'S. YOU SEEM TO HAVE FOCUSED MORE ON HIM BEING AN ILLEGAL..."

    It's quite simple Eduardo. Many of this country's citizens are TIRED of the law breaking illegals. You will probably respond by saying only some illegals are law breakers and that the rest are honest, hard working people. Don't waste the keystrokes. The very act of being here ILLEGALLY makes them NOT HONEST. Anyone here illegally is breaking the law and deserves to be sent home. People who are here illegally and go on to break other laws are even worse. Preying on our children is the lowest of the low.

    I CAN NOT BELIEVE MY FELLOW GOLO'S. YOU SEEM TO HAVE FOCUSED MORE ON HIM BEING AN ILLEGAL THEN THE ATTEMPTS THAT HE HAS MADE ON KIDNAPPING YOUNG CHILDREN. AND YOU, suchhappiness, I GUESS YOU ARE READY TO IMPEACH OUR PRESIDENT FOR THIS ACT. HOW COME YOU HAVE NOT INCLUDED A LAUNDRY LIST OF ALL OF OUR CONGRESSPEOPLE WHO ALSO SUPPORT ILLEGALS IN THIS COUNTRY? YES, "YOU HAVE EYES BUT CAN NOT SEE" AND "EARS BUT CAN NOT HEAR" IF OUR CONGRESS WHO HAS A 10 POINT LOWER RATING NATIONALLY THEN PRESIDENT BUSH, WOULD DO THEIR JOB, THIS MIGHT BE AVOIDED. BUT AS I STARTED TO POINT OUT, OUR BLOGGERS SEEM TO BE DISTURBED IN THEIR COMMENTS WHETHER HE MIGHT BE AN ILLEGAL, THEN THE ACTUAL CRIME TO OUR CHILDREN. HEY, suchhappiness, I DON'T MEAN TO PICK ON YOU
