A fugitive, caught in the Canadian woods in the dead of winter, is being returned to Houston Thursday to face charges he sexually assaulted a teenage girl.

Aamir Khan, 41, was arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in November while sneaking into that country from New York with his wife and son.

“He was literally walking through the woods,” said Kim Bryant, head of the fugitive-apprehension section of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. “We’d like to thank the Mounties for capturing him, so he can be held accountable, and his young victim can see justice.”

Khan is believed to have headed to Canada in a bid to make his way back to his native Pakistan.

After his arrest in Quebec, he unsuccessfully sought asylum.

Canadian authorities then ordered that he be extradited back to the United States. He is being returned by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Khan is charged in Harris County with indecency with a child and sexual assault of a child. The second-degree felonies carry penalties of two to 20 years in prison.

A date has not yet been set for his court appearance here in the 338th State District Court.

“Our team focuses its efforts on the most violent offenders,” Bryant said. “We are pleased to extend those efforts internationally.”

The sexual assault was investigated by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
