Bluffs man arrested on nearly three year old warrant

A 28 year old Scottsbluff man was arrested early Friday morning on a nearly three year old arrest warrant. Eduardo Rubio was arrested on the outstanding warrant early this morning by Scottsbluff Police after a traffic stop for speeding.

Rubio is charged with felony strangulation and third degree assault regarding a February 2011 incident. The arrest affidavit says Rubio forced his way into his former girlfriend's house and assaulted a man who was visiting her. The document says Rubio punched the man, kicked him in the back and face, and strangled him before leaving in a vehicle.

The responding officer later contacted Rubio by phone and indicated he needed to talk to him but he hung up. Police had not been able to locate him in the interim.
