Man Charged with Attempted Sexual Battery in Immokalee

Collier County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested a 23-year-old man and charged him with attempted sexual battery in Immokalee over the weekend.

Daniel Oralio Cardona was arrested Saturday on a felony charge of attempted sexual battery on a victim 18 years or older by a person 18 years or older.

Following his arrest, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer was placed on Cardona through ICE’s 287(g) program. ICE lodges detainers on individuals arrested on criminal charges who ICE has probable cause to believe are removable aliens.

Once Cardona has satisfied his local criminal charges he will be released to ICE custody. The 287(g) program is a law enforcement tool and serves as a deterrent to criminal illegal aliens.

Reports say the crime took place at a residence in Immokalee. Cardona became enraged with the victim and told her he was going to rape her. He pushed her down on a bed and attempted to remove her underwear. He also struck her with a closed fist on her right arm. She managed to reach her cell phone and call law enforcement. Vale fled the residence. Deputies made contact with him by phone and he returned to the residence where he was arrested.
