RENO, NV - A man suspected in a violent home invasion from last weekend in Fresno, CA has been arrested, following a manhunt in Reno Wednesday evening.
Several law enforcement agencies had been searching for Kristopher Rupe, wanted in the crime in Fresno involving a samurai sword.
Several agencies surrounded the area of Helena and Fife in Reno, off Oddie Boulevard.
Investigators say after Rupe was initially arrested, he somehow escaped from a police car, and took off. He was later found hiding inside a restroom in the Applebee's on Prater and Mccarran in Sparks. Rupe was arrested for a second time.
