MORRISVILLE — The U.S. Marshals Service arrested a fugitive wanted in Lamoille County for sexual assault.

Juan Vasquez, 19, was wanted on an arrest warrant charging him with sexual assault signed in June 21, 2019.

Bail was set at $100,000.00.

On October 28, the Lamoille County Sheriff’s Department sought the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service in locating and arresting Vasquez.

It was believed that Vasquez fled the state after the assault to avoid prosecution, and the investigators tracked him to Bronx, NY, where he was arrested without incident.

Vasquez will be seen in New York as a fugitive from justice in the coming days.
