A man who legally goes by the name Pirate is being extradited from Alaska in a 2004 sexual assault case.

Las Vegas police said the man's former name is Daniel Selovich.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has not released additional details about the case. However, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported that he was charged June 29 as a fugitive from justice in the state of Nevada. The newspaper said he was served with a no-bail warrant for sexual assault, first-degree kidnapping and battery to commit sexual assault with substantial bodily harm for the Las Vegas incident. 

In addition, Pirate was accused in a beating and sexual assault of a woman in Alaska but charges were dropped after the victim died, according to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. He allegedly held the woman hostage for weeks.

According to the Redding Record Searchlight in Northern California, Pirate was charged in 2010 in a sexual assault case there. The newspaper reported he took a four-year plea bargain in that case.
