Illegal Alien Faces Child Rape Charges

(Northampton, MA)  —  A former Amherst man is held on 100-thousand-dollars bail after denying that he drugged and raped a teenage girl 13 years ago.   The outstanding warrant against 41-year-old Mario Ayala was discovered when he was busted by border patrol agents last month.  In 2000 the girl’s father found her unconscious in Ayala’s apartment at The Boulders, and a medical examination revealed evidence of sexual activity.   The fugitive from justice also faces charges for being in the country illegally from El Salvador.
