RENO, NV - Reno police have arrested a man they believe sexually assaulted a woman in 2009.

Police think 26-year-old Daniel Riggs met a woman on a dating website and agreed to meet with her in 2009. Police say that date led to concensual sex in a hotel room, but the night got increasingly violent, and he raped her. Lack of evidence led police not to arrest him at that time.

The case was revisited after an additional victim reported a similar assault resulting in an arrest by Sparks police earlier this year. That led to Riggs' arrest for two counts of Sexual Assault and one count of Battery w/Attempt to commit a crime.
