detroit fugi­tive nabbed in austin

Austin American-Statesman - - LOCAL BRIEFING -

A fugi­tive ac­cused of ab­duc­tion and sex­ual as­sault in Detroit was ar­rested Fri­day af­ter­noon at an east­ern Travis County home, ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cial with the U.S. Mar­shals Ser­vice.

Cur­tis Der­rell Sn­er­ling, 30, of Detroit was ar­rested by mem­bers of the Lone Star Fugi­tive Task Force in the 4500 block of Best Way, near FM 969, said Hector Gomez, a Mar­shals Ser­vice su­per­vi­sory deputy.

Sn­er­ling is ac­cused of kid­nap­ping, beat­ing and sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a fe­male over the course of a day in June, Gomez said.

Texas of­fi­cials were alerted to Sn­er­ling’s pres­ence in the Austin area sev­eral days ago, Gomez said. Task force of­fi­cers learned Fri­day morn­ing that Sn­er­ling was at the home, he said. It is un­known whether the home­own­ers knew of the charges Sn­er­ling was fac­ing in Detroit, Gomez said.

When law en­force­ment of­fi­cials ar­rived at the home, Sn­er­ling was seen leav­ing out a side door, Gomez said. He was ar­rested af­ter of­fi­cers or­dered him to the ground, he said.

Two hand­guns were re­moved from the home, Gomez said.

Sn­er­ling is at the Travis County Jail await­ing ex­tra­di­tion to Wayne County, Mich., he said.
