ODESSA, TX (KWES) - A wanted person from Haltom City was arrested by Odessa Police on Saturday night.

Arnulfo Urias, 30, is charged with retaliation, aggravated sexual assault (warrant) and assault by strangulation (warrant).

Authorities said they were called out to the 900 block of Muskingum in reference to a wanted subject.
