The Napa County Sheriff's Department has arrested a registered sex offender who is now accused of sexually assaulting a girl back in 1992.

The investigation was reopened last year, leading to the arrest Thursday of Roberto Antonio at his Vallejo home.

Police say he snatched his 9-year-old victim off a playground at the Mount George Elementary School, put her in the trunk of his car, and drove off.

She was found a few hours later at Solano Community College.

Police are not saying, yet, exactly how they connected him to that cold case.
