SAO PAULO – An American on the U.S. Marshals' list of most-wanted sex offenders has been captured in Brazil.
A spokesman for Brazil's federal police says officers in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday captured Kenneth Andrew Craig. The U.S. Embassy has confirmed the arrest.
The U.S. Marshals' website says Craig is wanted for sexual assault against two boys in Florida in 1998 and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
The Brazilian police spokesman offered no other details on Craig's arrest and spoke on condition of anonymity per department rules.
Craig was featured twice recently on the "America's Most Wanted" TV show.
