ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A traveling nurse accused of a number of sexual assaults around Gallup has been arrested in his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. Dustin Hopper, 31, was arrested around midnight after a two-hour standoff.
Gallup police were searching for Hopper for raping a woman in a Gallup motel two weeks ago. The victim said Hopper was armed with a gun.
According to the criminal complaint, Hopper had a contract with a hospital near Gallup but was terminated due to the current in-house investigations of unwanted sexual advances.
The Apache County Sheriff's Office is also investigating another case with Hopper that involved sexual assault.
