CHICAGO | Federal immigration officials in Chicago have deported a Polish man wanted in his home country on charges of extortion, kidnapping and attempted murder.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say 42-year-old Dariusz Gordziejczyk was turned over to officials in Warsaw on Tuesday.
Polish officials say Gordziejczyk was convicted of beating and kicking a man in an attempt to extort money in 1999. He also was convicted of kidnapping another man that year, dousing him with gasoline and threatening to set him afire unless he turned over his BMW.
Gordziejczyk fled rather than report to prison, entering the United States in 2006 on a visitor's visa. He was arrested last year at a home in the Chicago suburb of River Grove. An immigration judge this year ordered him deported.
