Perez convinced them to let him go and said he wouldn't call police. As soon as he was free, he ran to the mobile home park office and called 911.

Deputies discovered that Cortez was wanted for murder in El Salvador. He is now accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second degree felony.
