CASPER, Wyo. — On Feb. 4 at about 12:46 p.m., Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers were dispatched to a possible domestic disturbance in the area of Bitter Creek Rest Area within Sweetwater County. The reporting party told the patrol dispatch they thought the driver of a grey Volvo semi-tractor trailer was dealing with a domestic disturbance with her ex-boyfriend.
Troopers found the vehicle parked at the eastbound Bitter Creek Rest Area on Interstate 80. As the occupants were interviewed, it was learned that the man was not supposed to be in the commercial truck.
The woman driver told troopers that the man was her ex-boyfriend and had entered her vehicle without her knowledge in California. She said he had physically and sexually abused her in the truck over the past several days while she was transporting the commercial cargo. She also said he stabbed her in the leg.
As the man was interviewed, he initially gave false information about his name to conceal his identity, the Wyoming Highway Patrol said in a news release. The man was identified as Alejandro Delgado, a resident of California, and he had an active warrant for his arrest out of California.
Delgado was arrested and booked into the Sweetwater County Detention Center on charges including a felony NCIC warrant (no bond, full extradition for parole violation out of Bakersfield, California) and misdemeanor interference with a peace officer.
This is an ongoing investigation, the highway patrol said.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol thanked the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Department for its help with the investigation.
