An illegal alien is accused of murdering a 76-year-old man outside his home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as well as two stabbings in Boston, Massachusetts.
Wagner Tejeda Pena, a 24-year-old illegal alien, has been arrested and charged for the two Boston stabbings as well as for allegedly murdering 76-year-old Loi Nguyen, a Vietnamese immigrant to the United States, who was arriving back home from a morning walk when he was shot in the back of the head.
The Boston Herald‘s Flint McColgan broke the news that Pena is an illegal alien living in the United States:
Tejeda-Pena — who also goes by the first name Wagner, according to the BPD, and the name “Elia,” according to charging documents — is in the country illegally and is on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer, according to an ICE source. [Emphasis added]
On June 21, while Nguyen was walking back to his Philadelphia home following his daily morning walk, police allege that Pena shot him in the back of the head, killing him instantly.
“Just because someone walks everyday, and strolls the streets of Philadelphia innocently, it hurts,” said a neighbor to local media.
Police allege Pena attempted to kill two people just blocks from Nguyen before his murder. Pena’s gun went out of control and the two men tried disarming Pena but Pena ran away.
In a separate case, Pena is accused of two stabbings in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston on February 13.
Philadelphia was the location where Nguyen’s murder took place. Boston is where both stabbings took place. Both cities are sanctuary cities and protect criminal illegal aliens against deportation and arrest by Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE).
Pena currently is being held in Boston without bail and will be back in court next week.
