Kent police have arrest a man in Chatham for offences in the United States, committed nine years ago. 47-year-old Sean Lopes, is wanted for charges of attempted murder and kidnapping in New York. He fled the country when he was released on bail in 2004.
A member of the public raised concerns about Lopes to Kent Police, who started investigating him. He was arested on Monday after an extradition warrant was issued by Westminister Magistrates' Court, and has been remanded in Custody.
