Charles Mozdir disappeared.
The then-California resident was charged with child sexual assault in
2012, accused of molesting a young boy he was babysitting, a spokesman
for the San Diego County district attorney said. Mozdir was friends with
the boy’s parents, according to authorities. He had photographed their
wedding.
The parents reported Mozdir to authorities, but Mozdir, 32, never showed
up for his arraignment. A $1,000,000 bail warrant was issued.
Mozdir moved away. He grew long hair and a beard. He went by the alias
“John,” and used the fake name to get a job at a New York City smoke
shop, a law enforcement official briefed on the case told ABC News.
“He was using an alias. But it’s not like they did some real background check or anything at the smoke shop,” the official said.

Mozdir began a new life, avoiding prosecution, avoiding capture.
Authorities spent two years searching – California. Georgia. Mexico.
Nothing.
But then his story was featured on CNN’s “The Hunt with John Walsh,” a
program about fugitives hosted by the “America’s Most Wanted” founder –
first on July 20, and then again July 27. Mozdir’s pet dog was mentioned
in the broadcast.
The tips poured in, tracing Mozdir to the Smoke Culture cigar shop in
New York City’s West Village neighborhood, a shop located in a tourist
area bounded by jazz clubs, restaurants, a subway station and a
basketball court.

United States Marshals and an NYPD detective visited there after 1 p.m.
Monday. The detective went in first by himself to positively identify
Mozdir.
“That’s him. That’s the guy. He looks different, but that’s the guy,” he
told the others, according to the law enforcement official.
The detective returned to the shop, this time followed by four Marshals
walking in two-by-two. Behind them was a Marshal supervisor. The group
entered cinematically with their vests on, identifying themselves as law
enforcement.

Shots rang out in the smoke shop, authorities said, with Mozdir firing
his .32-caliber revolver. The detective was shot twice – once in the
chest area, with one slug lodged in his vest, and the second in his
stomach just below the vest, authorities said. He underwent surgery. Two
of the Marshals each took one shot. The detective and Marshals are
expected to survive.
Mozdir appeared to be shot “at least six times,” although possibly more, the official said. Mozdir died from his injuries.
Mozdir was carrying 20 bullets in his pocket, authorities said.

Ballistics experts will deconstruct the shooting, and authorities plan
to search the store and Mozdir’s residence for additional information.
Walsh, appearing on Monday’s episode of “Anderson Cooper 360,” said he
remains stunned that fugitives hide in plain sight – in Mozdir’s case,
the middle of Manhattan.
“The biggest thing, what a relief for the family. Not only for their
incredible courage to go forward and press charges against him, but when
he ran, when he jumped his bond, his roommate had said that [Mozdir]
told him many times he was gonna come back and kill the father for going
to the police,” Walsh said.
“It’s a tough ending, but for the family it’s a good ending.”
