A man wanted in Detroit for mul­ti­ple counts of child mo­lesta­tion was ar­rested Satur­day at a ho­tel in north­east Arkansas, ac­cord­ing to the United States Mar­shals Ser­vice.

The agency’s Fugi­tive Task Force and of­fi­cers with Jones­boro Po­lice Depart­ment found Michael Flaker, 73, of Detroit at the Fairview Inn and Suites and took him into cus­tody with­out in­ci­dent, said Bob Clark, spokesman for the U.S. Mar­shals.

Sally Smith, a po­lice spokesman, said Flaker was sen­tenced in Michi­gan to 25 years in prison for child mo­lesta­tion. While in cus­tody, he cut his an­kle mon­i­tor off and fled.

Flaker took a Grey­hound bus to Jones­boro be­fore tak­ing a cab to the ho­tel on Apache Drive, Clark said.

“He had been in town for three days be­fore be­ing ar­rested,” Clark said.

He was booked into the Craig­head County jail and will be held with­out bail pend­ing ex­tra­di­tion.
