FABENS – Sheriff's Deputies arrested a man in Fabens who was wanted for a probation violation on an assault charge and had escaped capture twice before.


Deputies say Border Patrol agents helped them corner 47-year-old Raul Martin Fuentes at a house on the 200 block of NW Austin Street around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.


“Fuentes was spotted outside the residence trying to bury himself in dirt underneath some nearby bushes,” according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office.


Fuentes, who is a Mexican Mafia gang member from California, was arrested.


Deputies say last Friday Fuentes escaped capture at the same house by running out of the back door and down an alleyway.
