A 25-year-old man is in custody of the Lodi Police Department for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman acquaintance in Nevada on Aug. 26.
Joel Ross Sempier was arrested Friday afternoon after officers were directed to an address in town by the Reno Police Department, said Cpl. Tim Fritz of the Lodi Police Department.
"They asked us to check an address, and (Sempier) gave up peacefully when we contacted him," Fritz said.
Sempier had a warrant for his arrest in Washoe County for sexual assault and burglary, for allegedly assaulting an acquaintance in her residence last week.
He will be sent to San Joaquin County Jail before being extradited to Nevada to face charges, Fritz said.
