FAST Deputies Capture 2007 First Degree Assault Suspect #PGSO

Upper Marlboro, MD… The Prince George's County Office of the Sheriff’s Warrant/ Fugitive Division reported the arrest of Jose Filiberto Diaz of Lanham MD by the Fugitive Apprehension Surveillance Team (FAST) on an arrest warrant for First Degree Assault that was obtained by County Police back on October 3, 2007.

According to the warrant, on July 26th, 2007 Diaz was involved in an argument with another man that escalated to the point of Diaz pulling out a knife and attacking the man. The warrant indicates that the victim was cut on the arm trying to block the knife from striking his face and body. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he was admitted in serious condition.

Multiple attempts were made to serve the warrant before it was reassigned to the FAST’s unit on March 20, 2015. The FAST’s investigation discovered that Diaz had been using aliases and that he also had another outstanding warrant under one of them.  Further investigation revealed that Diaz had been deported on more than one occasion and had been denied re-entry into the United States several times. Records indicate that Diaz had obtained multiple Maryland driver’s licenses under different names and dates of birth over the years. After a thorough investigation, following the trail of multiple identities and driver’s licenses, warrant deputies were able to locate Diaz in Hyattsville, MD where they took him into custody on March 26th without incident.  He was transported to the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections (DOC) in Hyattsville, MD for processing.

Diaz is also charged with Assault Second Degree and Failure to Appear (FTA) for Failing to Stop after an Accident.
