Police have been granted more time to question a man who went on the run after two people were killed in separate attacks.
James Allen, 36, was arrested in Leeds on Sunday after he was spotted by an off-duty police officer.
He is being questioned by Cleveland Police following the murder last week of 81-year-old Colin Dunford in Middlesbrough and 50-year-old Julie Davison in Whitby, North Yorkshire.
Allen is being held at a police station in Middlesbrough on suspicion of the two murders and a sexual assault.
