TRENTON - Bail for an illegal alien from Guatemala accused of kidnapping, duct taping and robbing a woman was nearly doubled today by a Mercer County Superior Court judge.
An illegal immigrant detainer was placed on Sergio Sarceno Cano, 30, who was charged with kidnapping, terroristic threats, criminal restraint, theft and weapons offenses for the Feb. 21 alleged assault, said Assistant Prosecutor Skylar Weissman.
Cano allegedly kidnapped the victim from her Hamilton home, bound her arms, legs and mouth with duct tape and moved her around various places in the township against her will, the prosecutor said.
He taped her to prevent her from getting away and forced her to go places against her will, the prosecutor said. Sometime during the ordeal, he allegedly took $400 in cash from the victims pocketbook while brandishing a knife.
Weissman didnt say how the victim got away from the suspect. Cano was charged in 2007 with kidnapping, terroristic threats and weapons offenses for a similar offense and was free on $25,000 bail. That bail was revoked when Cano didnt show for a pre-indictment conference on that matter, said Mercer Judge Edward Neafsey

He has no criminal record in New Jersey, and no convictions, Amantia said, asking for a more reasonable bail......Well he does now !
One very twisted hombre. Sure sounds like a lot of trouble to go to in order to merely steal money from the gal’s purse. Even if she isn’t saying anything, detectives should do DNA checks.
Cano was charged in 2007 with kidnapping, terroristic threats and weapons offenses for a similar offense and was free on $25,000 bail. The guy is in America illegally picked up & arrested for kidnapping, terroristic threats and weapons offenses in 2007 and nobody felt the need to deport him or issue a detainer on him. Instead he gets bails and skips court date.
