A convicted sex offender with a history of violence was arrested after crossing the U.S. border illegally.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Enrique Reynoso-Rojas, a 36-year-old from Guatemala, was arrested near Amado, Arizona Thursday.

Agents learned the suspect was convicted in 2006 in Lee County, Florida, of attempted sexual battery with a child under 12.

Reynoso-Rojas remains in federal custody pending a court decision on felony criminal immigration charges.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection asks residents to report any suspicious activity by calling 1-877-872-7435 toll free.
