HOPEWELL, VA (WWBT) -

A man featured in our Most Wanted Wednesday segment has been caught - and U.S. Marshals say it's thanks to a NBC12 viewer tip.

Earl Dorsey was arrested at an apartment complex in Hopewell on Tuesday.

The arrest was a direct result of a viewer watching our story and calling in a tip. Dorsey was featured in Most Wanted Wednesday after a violent assault that happened in February and a close call three days later.

"Jiggetts was returning to the scene to actually 'finish the job,'"  said Brian Stalnaker with the USMS Fugitive Task Force.

Dorsey was featured with Nathaniel Jiggetts, who was an accomplice in the crime, but Jiggetts is still at large.

If you have any information on Nathaniel "S.K." Jiggetts, call the US Marshals 24-hour tip line at 1-877-926-8332 (1-877-WANTED-2).
