Man Stalked 16-Year-Old Girl, Ridgewood Police Claim

Carlos Umana, of El Salvador, is facing stalking charges and could be deported.

An illegal immigrant was picked up by Ridgewood police last Tuesday for allegedly stalking a 16-year-old Ridgewood girl over the course of a year, according to police.

Carlos Umana, 47, residing in Waldwick, was picked up at Veterans Field in Ridgewood and remains in Bergen County Jail in lieu of $2,000 bail with no 10 percent option.

Umana, a native of El Salvador, had an active warrant out from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Ridgewood Police Cpt. Jacqueline Luthcke said Umana was following a 16-year-old girl at sporting events for a "considerable amount of time" in such a way that it placed her in a "reasonable fear of death or bodily injury."

The victim, her parents and coaches were concerned for her safety, Luthcke said. Police have received previous calls on Umana, Luthcke said.

Police said they were not aware of any specific contact Umana made with the victim.

He was charged with stalking, a 4th degree charge. He could face deportation, immigration authorities told Patch.

Why is he allowed bail when he already had an outstanding warrant? Sounds like an absolute flight risk and danger to children to me!
