Authorities say a man wanted on rape and murder charges out of Texas was arrested today in New Orleans.

Forty-year-old Anthony Wayne O’Neal of New Orleans was arrested around 11:20 a.m. by the FBI’s SWAT Team and New Orleans Violent Crime Task Force.

He was being sought for an alleged murder in Temple, Tex. and sexual assault in Lorena, Tex. on August 22.  Authorities believe O’Neal also stole the sexual assault victim’s vehicle and fled east; it was found abandoned in Rayne, Louisiana the next day.

He is currently being held in New Orleans while authorities seek extradition to Texas.
