Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have arrested a man who was making an appearance in Danbury Superior Court on a sexual assault charge.  ICE took 23-year old Jonathan Rubio into custody yesterday for an immigration violation.  The Newstimes reports that the Department of Homeland Security did not detail his country of origin. 


Rubio was out on bond for a January 2014 incident in which he allegedly drugged a 15-year old girl with a form of Ecstasy and had sex with her.  He was due in court for a pre-trial hearing. 


Last month ICE agents took a 22-year old Ecuadorian citizen into custody on the day he was scheduled to be in court on a sex assault charge.  Julio Virgilio Paida-Morquencho had already pleaded guilty.
