Sexual predator James Anthony Rubio, 55, was arrested Monday evening by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in Bandera after a nine month run from the law.

An arrest warrant was issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety after Rubio allegedly failed to comply with sex offender registration and committed a sex offense, a U.S. Marshals press release stated.

Monday evening, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and the Bandera Sheriff's Office received information that Rubio was hiding out at a home in Bandera.

Rubio attempted to escape out of a back window, but was quickly caught by officers.

Rubio was taken to the Bandera County Jail where he was being held Monday evening, the release stated.

Rubio was released from prison last April after serving a 20 year sentence for sexually assaulting four different women, including one who was 14 years old. The release stated Rubio assaulted and threatened to kill his victims.

After his release from prison, U.S. Marshals said Rubio fled from a Travis County residential center and cut off his ankle monitor.

DPS officials added Rubio to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list and a $5,000 cash reward was offered for information leading to his capture.
