Sexual predator from Arizona caught in Oregon

PRESCOTT, AZ - A sexual predator with a long history of abusing children in Arizona is finally behind bars in Oregon.

US marshalls arrested Eric McNeill Wednesday afternoon in Klamath County.

The 64-year-old had been wanted in Yavapai county for numerous offenses against children, including sexual assault, kidnapping and child molestation.
