TOWN OF MADISON, Wis.
- Police said a man accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old in 2002 was
arrested Wednesday in Texas and will be extradited to Wisconsin to face
charges.




The Town of Madison
Police Chief Scott Gregory said in a news release Friday that a 13-year-old
girl reported to police on April 9, 2002, that Manuel Alberto-Camposeco had
sexually assaulted her.



Police said Camposeco
was arrested and charged but the charges were dismissed when the victim didn't
show up for court and the district attorney's office learned the girl was in
Mexico.



On April 16, 2013, police
said the victim came to the department to tell police she had been put on a bus
alone to Mexico in 2002 so that she could not testify against Camposeco.



Police re-opened the
case and arrested Camposeco, now 40 years old, on Oct. 7, 2013 on suspicion of
repeated sexual assault of a child.



Police said Camposeco
bailed out of Dane County Jail on Oct. 21, sold his house and never returned to
work. A bench warrant was issued for Camposeco Nov. 5 after he missed court
hearings.



Gregory said law
enforcement began searching for Camposeco in Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas and
Minnesota.



Wire transfer data led
a town of Madison police detective to an address in Austin, Texas, according to
the report. A Texas police task force began surveillance on the house and arrested
Camposeco before 7 a.m. on Wednesday.



Police said Camposeco
was taken to Travis County Jail in Texas on the bench warrant and is awaiting
extradition.



"A sexual assault
victim may finally see her day in court 12 years of the crime was
committed," Gregory said in the news release.
