Authorities have finally caught an Arizona fugitive who has been on the run for a decade after being convicted of sexual assault and kidnapping.

U.S. Marshalls and Tempe Police arrested Antonio Julio Sanchez — who was using the alias Antonio Anderson Erin Pina — on April 24 in Miami. Police say Sanchez went into hiding in 2002 after he pleaded guilty to sexual assault and kidnapping charges.

According to authorities, Sanchez and his cousin, Mazon Diamond, used ketamine to drug and sexually assault two females on different nights in March 2001.

Police said they brought the first victim to their apartment where they videotaped the assault.

Sanchez and Diamond pleaded guilty to both assaults in September 2002, but never showed up for their sentencing. The duo took off and began lives as fugitives.

Diamond has yet to be located and is still in hiding, said police.
