Milwaukee sex assault suspect arrested in Kentucky
The truck was located on I-71 as it was approaching the Louisville, Kentucky area around 9:00 PM Tuesday night. As law enforcement attempted to stop the suspect, he fled on foot into a wooded area.
Following a lengthy search, the suspect, who was armed with a knife, was arrested. This is the suspect whose composite sketch was released on Monday, June 19.
The suspect is also a person of interest in an attempted assault that happened three hours before the June 16 assault in Milwaukee.
The suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Jose A. Arevalo-Viera. The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office issued a warrant for his arrest.
Milwaukee Police personnel are in Kentucky continuing the investigation and working to extradite the suspect back to Wisconsin.
