An American criminal has been arrested in Scotland, where he was on the run. Nicholas Rossi was especially able to be identified by his tattoos.
An American criminal on the run in Scotland (UK) under a false identity was betrayed by his tattoos. Nicholas Rossi, 35, was the subject of an international arrest warrant for multiple charges of rape, sexual assault and fraud in the United States. His distinguishing mark is his tattooed arms. A Scottish nurse recognized them last year on a covid patient. The patient is arrested, but he denies any connection with Nicholas Rossi.
Scarred by the after-effects of covid, the man introduces himself as an Irishman named Arthur Knight. He says he was tattooed without his knowledge at the hospital and explains the disturbing similarity to manipulation. “I am not sure that all of these the police photos are authentic“, he said. But for justice, the evidence is overwhelming, especially because of his fingerprints. The US police suspect that he fled to Scotland several years ago to escape prosecution. He even has fake his death by posting fake obituaries on the Internet in 2020. At the same time, he married an Englishman who still supports him.
