PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A fugitive wanted in the kidnapping and torture of two prostitutes nearly a quarter century ago is back in an Oregon jail after being arrested in Mexico.

Hillsboro police Lt. Henry Reimann says 45-year-old Paul Jackson was booked Friday on an outstanding warrant. He says Jackson had little to say, other than he wanted to speak with a lawyer.

Jackson disappeared in 1991 while awaiting trial on charges that he and his older brother kidnapped prostitutes and held them captive.

He was arrested Monday by Mexican immigration authorities in Guadalajara. Authorities say it appears he had been living in Mexico for years under an assumed name.

Jackson’s brother, Vance Roberts, was convicted of kidnapping, rape, sodomy, sexual abuse and sexual penetration with a foreign object. The 61-year-old is serving a 108-year prison sentence.
