Suspect In Video Sex Tape A Survivalist, Former Animal Trainer

The fugitive accused of raping a little girl on videotape was portrayed Monday as a dangerous, knife-wielding survivalist who once vowed never to be taken alive.

The FBI and Las Vegas police are pressing a nationwide manhunt for 37-year-old Chester "Chet" Arthur Stiles.

Authorities say Stiles can be seen molesting a three-year-old girl in a video that was recorded four years ago and surfaced last month.

Stiles formerly worked as an animal trainer with Las Vegas illusionists Siegfried & Roy.

Investigators were interviewing people who know Stiles and pursuing hundreds of "very fruitful" leads from across the country.

Police Captain Vincent Cannito says Stiles has a violent, criminal past, a history of using narcotics and is considered "very dangerous."
