A fugitive Ecuadoran national from Hackensack who was apprehended on Long Island was returned to New Jersey this week to face charges of raping a pre-teen.

ICE placed a detainer on Jorge Luis Mora, 37, whom a local judge in Hackensack ordered held in the Bergen County Jail pending trial following his extradition Friday from New York.

Mora became a fugitive after detectives from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office charged him earlier this year with sexually assaulting the victim in Hackensack in 2013.

He already had a criminal record, with arrests in 2017 for harassment and violating a court order of protection and in 2011 for simple assault, records show.

Detectives from Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella’s Special Victims Unit tracked Mora to a location in Suffolk County, where the prosecutor said local sheriff’s officers captured him on Feb. 11.

A judge later ordered Mora returned to New Jersey following an extradition hearing.
