Authorities capture wanted man convicted of sex crime against 7-year-old boy


SAN ANTONIOUPDATE:  The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force captured a fugitive on Thursday morning.

Eric Duke, who had been on the run for nearly two years, is now charged with violating sex offender registration conditions.


A San Antonio man convicted of a sex crime nearly a decade ago remains at large.

The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force has been searching for Eric Duke since an arrest warrant was issued in November 2017. The warrant is for failure to comply with sex offender registration conditions, which Duke is required to do for the rest of his life due to his 2009 conviction.

In 2009, Duke was sentenced to five years in prison and was ordered to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. He was convicted of indecency with a 7-year-old boy by sexual contact.

What we know about Duke:

  • He is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds.
  • His last known place of residence was on the NE Side of San Antonio
