RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Reno Police have arrested a local man responsible for sexual assault committed in 2009.
Daniel Harvey Riggs, 26, had met the female victim on an Internet dating/social website. The two agreed to meet in Reno in June 2009. After patronizing a nearby casino, Riggs returned to the victim's hotel room where consensual intimate contact commenced. Reno Police say Riggs became increasingly violent as he intimidated and forcefully sexually assaulted the victim.
Due to lack of evidence, Riggs was not arrested at the time of the original incident. The case was ultimately revisited after an additional victim reported a similar assault resulting in an arrest by the Sparks Police Department earlier this year.
Riggs was arrested and booked for two counts of Sexual Assault and one count of Battery w/Attempt to Commit a Crime.
