SAN ANTONIO – One week after he first appeared on KSAT-12, a fugitive wanted since July was arrested in Las Vegas after a viewer tipped authorities.

Deputy US Marshal Chris Bozeman said Tuesday the tipster saw Jose Luis Rios after he was featured last Tuesday on KSAT-12.

Rios is wanted for two counts of indecency with a child under the age of 17.

By 11:30 Tuesday morning, Rios was arrested in Las Vegas, where it appeared he had moved to "start a new life," Bozeman said.

Rios faces extradition to Bexar County on the charges. He was being held without bond in the Clark County Jail.
