SEATTLE — Days after Canadian authorities decided not to extradite a violent sex offender who crossed into the U.S., the man is in custody, suspected of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy.

Michael Sean Stanley will appear in a Seattle court today. He was jailed for investigation of harassment Tuesday.

Authorities say Stanley is also being investigated for assault after Seattle police said he met a boy at a west Seattle grocery store, struck up a conversation and walked with him to an alley where he plied the teen with alcohol and attacked him. The boy pulled a knife and was able to escape, police said.
