LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a motorcycle gang member has been arrested in New Mexico for an alleged sexual assault on a young boy last year.
The U.S. Marshals Service announced Thursday that Jordan Dennis was in custody on suspicion of criminal sexual penetration of a minor.
Federal authorities say Dennis was arrested late Wednesday in Truth or Consequences by a team of law enforcement officers.
They say Dennis allegedly assaulted a 6-year-old boy last November or December and a warrant for his arrest was issued by Carlsbad police.
Authorities believe there may be additional victims and say they're expanding their investigation in southern New Mexico.
They say Dennis was known to law enforcement officers as a member of the Bandidos motorcycle gang.
Authorities didn't immediately know if Dennis has a lawyer yet.
