TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The man wanted in at least four states for sexual assault is headed back to Tucson to face charges here.

Tucson News Now has confirmed Nathan Loebe will be extradited to Tucson soon, where he is wanted in connection with nine sexual assaults and 40 open cases of stalking, harassment and making threats against women.

In February 2017, Loebe was arrested in Kentucky for an alleged sexual assault.

That's when police found out Loebe was wanted in four other states, included Arizona, for similar charges.

Kentucky authorities said Loebe contacted women on dating websites and posed as Brian Bonsall, the actor who played Andrew Keaton on "Family Ties."

Loebe even got tattoos to match the ones Bonsall has, according to a news release.

The real Bonsall took to social media to warn people about Loebe and apologize to the victims. He claimed Loebe even made fake YouTube and Twitter accounts.

Bonsall later talked with Kentucky authorities to assist in the investigation.

All charges in the Kentucky case have been dropped but Loebe is also wanted in Colorado, Massachusetts and Ohio.

According to WAVE 3, our sister station in Kentucky, authorities there are waiting for the Tucson Police Department to pick Loebe up.

    The postal inspection service is offering up a pretty hefty reward after a package was stolen from a Tucson woman's doorstep. This wasn't a Christmas present, it was something much more precious, a father's ashes.
