U.S. Marshals arrested a Florida sex offender in downtown Cleveland's Public Square last Friday.

Brian Buttolph, 27, was wanted out of Hillsborough County in west Florida for sexual battery against a child under the age of 12.

Authorities gained information that Buttolph moved to Cleveland shortly after the assault. 

Last Friday, surveillance around the Public Square area led U.S. Marshals to Buttolph, who was spotted near W. 6th and Superior Avenue. He was arrested on the street without incident.
