By Alex Fees (KSDK) Mathew Wilson, the 48-year-old suspect wanted for the March 4 assault of a real estate agent in Weldon Spring, was arrested Saturday evening by police in Texas. St. Charles County Sheriff's Department officials say Wilson was taken into custody outside of a real estate office in the town of Granbury, Texas, near Fort Worth. Investigators say U.S. Marshals tracked Wilson to Texas and notified police in the town of Granbury. St. Charles County Sheriff's Department officials say a Granbury police officer spotted a vehicle that matched the one investigators believe Wilson was driving, outside a realtor's office. The license plates did not correspond to those investigators were looking for, but the officer noticed a lot of clothing and other items inside and that raised the officer's suspicions. When Wilson returned to the real estate office, police took him into custody without incident. No word yet on when Wilson will be brought back to Missouri where he faces charges of first-degree robbery, armed criminal action and felonious restraint against a 24-year-old woman. Investigators say he will have to go through an extradition process that will not get started before Monday.
