CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - – Brandon Jessiman, 26, a man accused of two counts of aggravated assault and battery; strangulation of a household member; sexual assault in the first degree; kidnapping; and three counts of domestic battery stemming from incidents occurring between February 27th and March 5th, 2021 was arrested in Scottsbluff, Nebraska on 04/28/2021.

On 03/08/2021 an arrest warrant was issued in Carbon County, pursuant to an investigation by the Saratoga Police Department.

In March 2021, members of the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Wyoming Fugitive Task Force in Cheyenne initiated an investigation to locate and apprehend Jessiman at the request of the Carbon County District Attorney and Saratoga Police Department. USMS investigators and Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) agents developed information Jessiman fled Wyoming through Colorado and may be hiding in western Nebraska.

Through a joint investigation between the USMS fugitive task forces in Wyoming and Colorado, Saratoga Police Department, Wyoming DCI, Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office (Nebraska) and Western Intelligence Narcotics Group (WING) Task Force (Nebraska), Jessiman was located and arrested after a brief foot pursuit. Jessiman was booked into the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center in Nebraska awaiting extradition to Carbon County, Wyoming.

Randall Huff, the United States Marshal for the District of Wyoming, said, “This case is a great example of teamwork among federal, state and local law enforcement agencies leading to the arrest of a violent suspect over a three-state area. We hope the apprehension of this suspect will bring some degree of closure to the victim.”
