The two arranged to meet in the parking lot of a coffee shop on August 15 in Austin and the two left in a Black Ford Edge registered to Wilson. Police allege in an affidavit filed today that Wilson had sex with an underage girl and paid her $500 afterward. The affidavit says detectives determined that Sanjuro and Wilson were the same person after comparing his profile photo to Wilson's driver's license photo.

The affidavit also details video surveillance footage from the Archer Hotel, where the assault allegedly took place, as well as a local restaurant, where cameras captured the victim getting out of Wilson's auto after the reported assault. For years, the debate has continued as Wilson and his company, Defense Distributed, have been fighting lawmakers.

Shortly after Wilson posted the blueprints online in 2013, the Obama administration ordered him to take them down.

Cody Wilson, notorious for publishing 3D-printed gun designs online, is believed to be holed up in Taiwan after United States cops suspected him of sexually assaulting an underage teenager.

Last year, Apple went a step further by building a 5.8-inch OLED display for its tenth-anniversary iPhone , called the iPhone X. Cook thinks Facebook's Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal is so big that it warrants "well-crafted regulation".

The Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) yesterday said that Wilson had entered Taiwan on September 6.

A warrant for Wilson's arrest orders him held on $150,000 bond. Authorities were working to find him to bring him back to Texas to face the sexual assault charge.

Grassley had said that in the interest of making Ford comfortable, he'd be willing to let Ford testify in public or private. The staffer also said committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein's staff would be invited to participate in the call.

The NIA said that if Wilson was seen to be attempting to leave Taiwan, he would be stopped.

"It makes no sense to make downloadable guns available to any felon, domestic abuser or terrorist", said Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, one of many who have sued to stop the distribution of Wilson's 3-D gun designs. He said it's unclear why Wilson went to Taiwan, but he is known to travel extensively.

Despite an ongoing case to release the blueprints publicly online, Wilson maneuvered around the legal ban last month by selling the 3D printed gun blueprints on flash drives.
