The Reno Police Department says they have made in an arrest in a crime that happened in 2003.

Police say 34-year-old Jimy Contreras-Pedroza was living with a woman roommate and her children in the Stead area in 2003. They say the children reported to their mother that inappropriate conduct had occurred with Contreras-Pedroza inside the home. The victim's mother reported the crime to the children's school who then called the Reno Police Department.

After an investigation, detectives issued a warrant for Contreras-Pedroza but were never able to locate him.

On Wednesday, police say they received a call of a suspicious vehicle near a park in the Stead area. Police made contact with the vehicle, discovered the driver was Contreras-Pedroza and arrested him. 

He is charged with three counts of lewdness with a child under 14 and one count of attempted sexual assault against a child under 14.
