East Texas fugitive captured in Shreveport

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - An East Texas man wanted on multiple felonious offenses is now behind bars.

On Tuesday, Center, Texas police say they received information that Anthony Letroy James had fled to Shreveport, LA.

James was wanted for two counts of aggravated sexual assault, aggravated assault and unlawful restraint for his alleged involvement in an incident that happened on Sept. 11.

Center police contacted the U.S. Marshal's service in Shreveport for help with locating James.

Police say James was taken into custody and booked into the Caddo Correctional Center.

Just last week, James was arrested for allegedly stabbing two people. Police say James got angry and pulled a knife on the victims, stabbing one victim under his left rib area puncturing his lung and then slicing the other victim's lower torso.

For that crime, James was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
