Kevin Anthony Briggs

Fugitive Kevin Anthony Briggs, who was wanted by the FBI after escaping custody in Montana earlier this month, was arrested without incident in Portland tonight.

The FBI offered a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the location and arrest of Briggs, 28, who was wanted on state charges of aggravated assault, sexual intercourse without consent, assault on a peace officer and escape.

Officials believed he may have fled to Washington after escaping custody on Feb. 1. Authorities believe he traveled to Missoula, Mont., then bought a one-way ticket to Spokane.
