Border Patrol arrests Forks Twp. man
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a Forks Township man at Philadelphia International Airport last Wednesday. He’s wanted on felony child sex assault charges.
CBP officers arrested Michael Pierre Boumal, a 65-year-old U.S. citizen from Forks Township after he arrived aboard a flight from Doha, Qatar, shortly after 4 p.m. He was wanted by Forks Township Police Department on a 2012 warrant for felony criminal attempt to commit aggravated Indecent assault of a child; corruption of a minor; and indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age.
CBP officers confirmed with Forks Township Police that the arrest warrant remained active. Officers then met the flight as it gated and escorted Boumal to CBP’s Federal Inspection Service area where officers verified Boumal’s identity and confirmed that he is the subject of the arrest warrant.
CBP officers turned Boumal over to Forks Township Police Department detectives who were on scene for Boumal’s arrival.
