Alleged Child Molester Captured After 7 Years on the Run



Norfolk, VA – A Chesterfield man wanted for multiple sex offense charges against a child was captured in Hampton this morning. 32 year-old Daniel Soriano Avila, one of Chesterfield Police Department’s Most Wanted, had been on the run for 7 years.

On November 11, 2008, Avila was charged with the following felony offenses in connection to an incident that occurred earlier that same year: Abduction & Kidnapping, Aggravated Sexual Battery (four counts), Indecent Liberties with Child (four counts), and Object Sexual Penetration.

Recently, members of the Richmond based U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force developed information that Avila may be living at an address in the 30 block of Roland Drive in Hampton. Early this morning, members of both the Norfolk and Richmond U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Forces took Avila into custody without incident.

Avila is currently being held at the Chesterfield County Jail.

The U.S. Marshals-led Fugitive Task Force consists of law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshals, Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office, Newport News Police Department, Portsmouth Police Department and Norfolk Police Department. The main objective of the task force is to seek out and arrest violent offenders with outstanding federal and state warrants.

The U.S. Marshals Service, America’s oldest federal law enforcement agency, arrested more than 33,700 federal fugitives, 71,000 state and local fugitives and 11,600 sex offenders in 2014. Our investigative network and capabilities allow for the unique ability to track and apprehend any fugitive who attempts to evade police capture, anywhere in the country.
