LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a white supremacist accused of fatally stabbing an Oregon man and slashing the face of another man at a Utah bus station has been arrested in Corvallis, Ore.
Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts said a tip led investigators to Corvallis, where they spotted 37-year-old Erik John Meiser walking down a street Saturday. Sheriff's deputies and the U.S. Marshals Service arrested him at gunpoint and without incident at a Super 8 motel.
The capture ends a nearly weeklong manhunt that spanned the West Coast. Police earlier identified Meiser as the suspect in the Sept. 17 stabbing death of Fredrick "Fritz" Hayes at his Lake Oswego home.
Authorities in Ogden, Utah, also have an arrest warrant for Meiser that accuses him of aggravated assault on Sept. 8.
