Taiwan police arrest Texas 3D gun man accused of sex with minor

Cody Wilson

Taiwan's National Immigration Agency said in a statement that Wilson was caught by the police earlier Friday and handed over to immigration authorities to process his deportation.

The U.S. Marshals Service, which would likely be responsible for taking Wilson back to the United States, said in a statement it was aware of Wilson's arrest and was "fully engaged with our worldwide partners on this matter".

The real estate company that he signed a contract with earlier this month contacted the authorities after watching news about his sexual assault case on TV, police said.

On Wednesday, Trey Officer of the Austin Police Department's organized crime division told reporters that police had begun a manhunt for Wilson who flew to Taipei and cancelled his flight back to the U.S. The National Immigration Agency is now urging the American Institute in Taiwan to issue a valid travel document for Mr Wilson, so he can be deported back to the US accordingly.

The email made clear she would not appear at the Monday hearing at which Kavanaugh has already agreed to testify. According to the statement, Ford and her family have received threats and she is "currently unable to go home".

She said that he later identified himself as "Cody Wilson" and claimed to have been 'a big deal'.

Wilson and the girl met at a coffee shop August 15 and left together in a black Ford Edge, police said. They said the vehicle was similar to a 2015 black Ford Edge registered with Wilson's business, Defense Distributed. A counselor for the teenager reported the accusation to Austin police a week later, according to the affidavit.

Cody Wilson, with Defense Distributed, holds a 3D-printed gun called the Liberator at his shop in Austin, Texas.

Video showed the two leaving the hotel, the affidavit alleged. The girl told investigators that Wilson paid her $500 after they had sex and then dropped her off at a Whataburger restaurant.

It is not clear why he went to Thailand specifically, Officer said.

ABC News' attempts to reach Wilson have been unsuccessful. It is expected to deport him to the U.S.to face those charges, which carry a potential 2 to 20 years in prison and $10,000 fine. The video got almost half a million views and the design was downloaded almost 100,000 times.

Later that month, Wilson said he'd started selling the plans for producing plastic firearms using 3-D printers despite an injunction blocking it because of concerns about public safety.
