Violent deportee who escaped ICE custody in New York City apprehended in Chicago

Federal law enforcement agents have apprehended a violent deportee who escaped Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody in Chicago.

Officials said Mohamadou Lamine Mbacke, a Senegalese national, was in the custody of ICE agents at New York’s Kennedy International Airport late Tuesday when he escaped. ICE agents were preparing to place Mbacke on a commercial flight when he escaped custody.

Surveillance footage show Mbacke later fleeing the airport in a taxi cab.

According to ABC7 Chicago, ICE’s Fugitive Operations Team apprehended the 31-year-old Mbacke on Friday at a coffee shop near Chicago’s Union Station.

The agency says Mbacke legally entered the country in 2005 but violated the terms of his status.

An immigration judge in Detroit ordered Mbacke’s deportation in September 2015 following his conviction in November 2013 for a felony firearms possession.

He was ordered to serve two years in prison for the felony conviction.
