A Cheyenne man accused of sexually abusing a child under the age of 13 was captured over the weekend by Cheyenne Police, according to a spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service.

The Wyoming Fugitive Task Force, which is led by the Marshals Service, asked for information from the public last week on Duane Lester Jackson of Cheyenne.

Jackson was wanted on a warrant for three counts of 1st degree sexual abuse of a minor by a person over the age of 21 and a victim under the age of 13. Marshals Service spokesman Justin Stephenson says someone called the Cheyenne Police Department with a tip on where Jackson could be found, leading to his arrest on Saturday.

Stephenson says the tip apparently was the result of the publicity that came out of news coverage of the case last week.

Stephenson on Monday thanked the public for coming forward with the information that led to Jackson's arrest.
