BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Biloxi police have located and arrested Alexander Oneil Stewart, 30, of Gautier in Scott County. Stewart is being held at the Scott County Jail until he can be transported back to the Biloxi Police Department.

Oneil was identified as a suspect wanted in connection with a reported assault in the parking garage of the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi last week. A Biloxi Municipal Court misdemeanor arrest warrant was issued for simple assault. Police believed Stewart was homeless and his current whereabouts were unknown.

Biloxi police officers responded to the scene at about 3:40 a.m on March 24. Police say a man followed the victim to her car and hit her in the face multiple times after she refused his advances. She was later treated at a hospital for her injuries and released. 

Still images of the suspect were taken from surveillance footage.
