Two Mexicans, one wanted in Texas for the rape of a minor and the other wanted in California for kidnapping, sexual assault and attempted murder, were extradited to the United States, the Attorney General's Office said.

Ignacio Romero, who also goes by the aliases of Ignacio Contreras and Ignacio Medina, was wanted for the "rape and aggravated sexual assault of a minor" in Bexar County, Texas, the AG's office said.

Romero allegedly sexually abused a minor "in a systematic manner" between 1999 and 2000, "taking advantage of his family position," the AG's office said.

Pedro Vicente Aguirre, the other suspect extradited to the United States, will stand trial in Stanislaus County, California, for "kidnapping with the intent of rape, attempted murder, engaging in forced lascivious acts with a minor, rape, sexual assault, breaking and entering, and endangering the life of a minor," the AG's office said in a statement.

Aguirre allegedly broke into a family's house on Oct. 24, 1999, and found three children and two adults inside.

The suspect wounded the two adults, sexually assaulted the woman and kidnapped a girl, "who he later sexually attacked," the AG's office said.

Romero was arrested on May 19 and was being held at a prison in the Federal District, while Aguirre was detained Sept. 16, 2009, and was being held at the Mil Cumbres federal prison in Morelia, the capital of the western state of Michoacan.

The two suspects were handed over to the U.S. Marshals Service at the Mexico City international airport last Friday.
