EL PASO - Authorities are looking for a man accused of sexually assaulting a young boy 16 years ago.
El Paso County Sheriff's Deputies say Arturo Blanco approached a 15-year-old boy in 1995 as the boy was selling newspapers on a street corner in Northeast El Paso.
Blanco claimed to own a music business and offered the teen a job.
Once he got the teen inside his house, Blanco sexually assaulted him.
Blanco was arrested a short time later, but was released on bail and never showed up for court.
In 2000, Blanco was indicted for sexually assaulting another boy.
He's been featured on America's Most Wanted, where several callers reported seeing him in California, Minnesota, New York and here in El Paso.
If you have any information on Arturo Blanco's whereabouts, call Crime Stoppers at 566-T-I-P-S (8477).
