Suspected serial rapist Nathan Loebe who was wanted in Tucson is under arrest. The 36-year-old is being held at the Nelson County Jail in Bardstown, Kentucky. 
 
Tucson Police Department issued a warrant for Loebe's arrest on multiple assaults in Tucson. Kentucky authorities served him last week after he was arrested and booked on a count of sexual assault after meeting a woman on a social media site. 
 
Loebe is also wanted in Massachusetts, Colorado and Ohio for sexual assault.  
 
According to investigators, Loebe meets his victims online through dating sites but did not use his own identity. Instead, Loebe stole the identity of 'Family Ties' child actor, Brian Bonsall. 
 
Loebe's roommate did an interview with an ABC affiliate in Louisville. 
 
His roommate wanted goes by the name of Crystal and says she met him online, as well. After knowing him for a few days, he moved into her apartment. 
 
She says, she could have been one of the victims. Adding, "Everything is a lie, I was just trying to be nice and help the guy out now this all comes out."
 
Reports say Loebe went to extreme lengths to look like Bonsall, even getting the same tattoos.
     
The actor-turned-musician issued a statement and says he was relieved the chase for Loebe was over. 
 
"Dealing with Nathan Loebe over the last ten years has been a nightmare, but also led me to meet several absolutely inspiring women who have been united in their determination to stop Nathan Loebe." 
 
Loebe is being held on a $200 million bond from Arizona and $200,000 from Kentucky. Loebe is due back in court on Tuesday.
