Here we go again. The story says they're undocumented, meaning they're here illegally, of course.

In a shocking development, they've been reported to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Not only did these animals assault this poor woman, they apparently fractured her skull.

Must be a cultural thing.

I'm sure they were very hard-working fellows, out at 1:40 in the morning attacking women.

3 undocumented immigrants held in rape attempt
Three undocumented immigrant men remain jailed today in the brazen sexual assault of an unconscious woman in Fairview, an outdoor attack interrupted by law officers early Tuesday, authorities said.

Police reported the men, all undocumented residents from Guatemala, to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, authorities said. The report was in accordance with a recent directive from the state attorney general, ordering local officers to check the immigration status of all suspects charged with serious crimes or drunken driving.

One man, the alleged rapist, was arrested almost immediately after he was spotted attacking his victim and chased down, police said. A second man believed to have aided in the woman's capture, who fled the scene when he was spotted, was arrested Tuesday night. A third man was charged with hindering the investigation, officials said.

The attack began about 1:40 a.m. Tuesday after the woman stepped off a bus from New York, where she spent time with friends, Fairview Deputy Police Chief Frank Del Vecchio said today. She was accosted by two men at the bus stop and carried or dragged across a patch of grass to an alley outside an Oritani Savings Bank on Fairview Avenue, Del Vecchio said.

Two law officers approaching the scene observed a man "who appeared to be in the act of committing a sexual assault upon an unconscious female victim," Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said in a statement.

The suspect, Martin Cana-Chocoj, 25, of Fairview, was arrested after a brief chase, Del Vecchio said. Sergio Ramon-Estrada, 19, of Fairview, the man suspected of helping to abduct the victim, was arrested Tuesday night, Molinelli said. Each man was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated sexual assault and jailed in lieu of $500,000 bail.

The victim suffered a fractured skull in the attack and was taken to Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen, then to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan, authorities said. Her condition was not available today.

Felix Cana-Chocoj, a 25-year-old Cliffside Park man who is Ramon-Estrada's cousin, was charged with hindering the investigation, authorities said. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail. The men did not have identification when arrested and do not appear to have prior criminal records, authorities said, although the results of their fingerprint checks are pending.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has an exhaustive report.
