A ‘stalker’ accused of breaking into a woman’s home while she was recording a TikTok video is now in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement because he is in the United States illegally.
Angel Moises Rodriguez-Gomez, 36, was arrested and charged with burglary, assault, stalking and destruction of property after he burst into Hannah Viverette’s apartment in Hagerstown, Maryland on November 22.
Rodriguez-Gomez was subsequently released on bail, but was detained again on Thursday for immigration violations.
According to TMZ, Rodriguez-Gomez is a Mexican national who arrived in the US unlawfully.
ICE officials told the publication that agents took him to their Baltimore Field Office for questioning and he was subsequently detained while awaiting a hearing. It is unclear whether he will be deported.
Rodriguez-Gomez lives in the same apartment complex as Viverette, and she says he had made ‘uncomfortable advances’ toward her prior to the night he broke in to her home.
At the time of the intrusion, Viverette was recording a dance for TikTok, and video captured the terrifying moment she realized the intruder was watching at her balcony door.
Viverette shared the clip to social media where it has now been viewed more than five million times.

Hannah Viverette shared the terrifying moment that Angel Moises Rodriguez-Gomez, 36, came in through the second-floor balcony of her Maryland apartment on November 22
The video starts with Viverette practicing her dance moves before she stops still and sees Rodriguez-Gomez at the door before he steps inside.
‘Who are you? Please get out!’ she repeatedly states as he mumbles back.
‘Am I your friend?’ Rodriguez-Gomez then asks her before Viverette again implores him to leave.
As he refuses to go, Viverette takes her phone and runs toward the front door of her apartment, managing to film Rodriguez-Gomez behind her before another comes out to the landing to see what is going on. At that point, Viverette took refuge in the neighbor’s home.

‘For so long I brushed it off, assuming him to “just be a creep”. It was the moment I came face to face with him at my door that I knew he was there to harm me,’ Viverette added.
Viverette also claims that Rodriguez-Gomez ripped a section of Christmas lights from her balcony leading to his destruction of property charge.
Following his arrest, he was released on bail, leaving Viverette too terrified to stay at her home for fear of being in close proximity to the offender.
She is now looking for another place to live, but is reported to be relieved Rodriguez-Gomez is now in ICE custody.
