Police arrest suspect wanted in summer crime spree

A suspect wanted for arson, attempted murder and sexual assault since the summer has been arrested, police reported.

Police said patrol officers picked the man up without a struggle when a security guard at an apartment block on the 200 block of Dufferin Avenue reported a disturbance in the early morning hours Monday.

Officers who answered the call at 12:45 a.m. took the man into custody and realized he was wanted once his identity was confirmed.

After the summer attacks, there was no indication the man was active, Winnipeg Police Services spokesman Const. Jay Murray said.

“I don’t think we thought he was in town,” Murray said.

Both the attempted murder and arson were the result of a domestic dispute. On July 15, police first reported the suspect was wanted for a sexual assault.

Two weeks later, the same man was identified as a suspect in a serious arson at an apartment building in the 400

On Tuesday — roughly six months after he was captured in San Diego — Byers pleaded guilty in federal court in Connecticut to a charge of robbery.

The charge stemmed from a series of April stick-ups that kept the 35-year-old running from the law for nearly two weeks, according to authorities.

Byers, of Solana Beach, appeared on the covers of four romance novels, L.A.-based photographer Michael Stokes told The Times after Byers’ capture in May.
