AUSTIN – James Anthony Rubio, 55, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, is now in custody after being arrested Monday in Bandera as the result of a tip.  Rubio, the first Texas Department of Public Safety Most Wanted fugitive arrested in 2013, is considered a sexually violent sex offender who was being electronically monitored at the time of his escape. The anonymous tipster will receive a $5,000 reward from Texas Crime Stoppers. 

Rubio was a civilly committed sex offender who was discharged from prison in April 2012, after serving 20 years in prison for sexual assault. On Sept. 30, 2012, he cut off his ankle bracelet monitor and fled from the Travis County Residential Center in Del Valle. Shortly after a tip was received Monday, Rubio was apprehended at a residence in Bandera, where he attempted to escape by jumping out of a window.  The arrest was made by the Bandera County Sheriff's Office and U.S. Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, which includes the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Rubio had outstanding warrants for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Civil Commitment requirements and a federal warrant for Sex Offense. His lengthy criminal history includes Aggravated Sexual Assault, Sexual Assault, Rape, Attempted Rape and Terroristic Threat.
