A Mississippi man has been arrested after a woman claimed he sexually assaulted her at a gas station off Interest 80 in western Nebraska.
The Nebraska State Patrol reports 61-year-old Robert Hall of Gulfport, Mississippi has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault, attempted first-degree sexual assault, and making terroristic threats.
NSP says troopers responded to a report near North Platte late last night that a man had assaulted a woman while they were traveling in a vehicle. When troopers arrived, the man had fled the scene.
The Deuel County Sheriff’s Office found the vehicle about an hour later at a truck stop in Big Springs. Hall had left the vehicle, but troopers located him a short time later.
