A suspect accused of sexual assaulting a man in Nevada was captured over three decades after he failed to show up in court, authorities said.
Las Vegas police announced Clifton Arnold, 68, was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Jan. 3 in connection to the case.
According to a police report obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, a man claimed in 1991 he had been drinking and passed out before Arnold allegedly raped him.
