photo (7)A 32-year-old man who was on the lam for nearly two years following the attempted rape of a Pleasantville resident has pleaded guilty to two felony counts in connection with the attack.

Oswaldo Jacinto-Ordonez, an illegal Guatemalan immigrant, will be sentenced in January following his plea to one count each of first-degree attempted rape and second-degree strangulation.

Pleasantville Police Chief Richard Love issued a release on Wednesday stating that after an exhaustive investigation by the department’s detectives, it was determined that Jacinto-Ordonez fled the area following the Aug. 9, 2011, attack on the 28-year-old woman. An arrest warrant was issued and the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) were notified.

On May 9, ICE agents located Jacinto-Ordonez in South Kingstown, R.I. living under an alias. He was taken into custody, waived extradition and was returned to New York to face prosecution.

Jacinto-Ordonez will be sentenced on Jan. 14 and faces eight years in prison and 15 years of post-release supervision. He will also be registered as a sexual offender.
