Reno police say a convicted sex offender with an outstanding warrant from Alaska was arrested at the Circus Circus Casino after allegedly approaching and following an underage boy.
Police say 43-year-old Michael Kolkman had purchased a soda for the boy, who became uncomfortable, walked away and found a family member.
Kolkman was detained by security and later arrested.
Authorities say he is a convicted sex offender who was recently released from prison. He had been staying at a downtown motel since June 4.
Police add Kolkman also has an outstanding warrant from Alaska for attempted sexual abuse.
