AMSTERDAM -- The police in Bonaire arrested a man in connection with the disappearance of 24-year-old Dutch woman Marlies van der Kouwe.

The police released no information about the suspect except that he is from the island's capital, Kralendijk. However, a radio station on the island reports that the suspect recently served an eight-year prison sentence for sexual violence.

Two houses were searched in Kralendijk's Tera Kora district in connection with the arrest.

The Dutch woman, who works on Bonaire as a pharmacist's assistant, disappeared last weekend after a party. A witness said she was pulled from her bicycle.
