BEIJING, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Chinese police have handed over an American "Red Notice" fugitive to U.S. law enforcers Monday at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) said in a statement.

The repatriation was demanded by U.S. law enforcement authorities and was the latest result of Sino-U.S. cooperation in chasing fugitives and illicit money since the countries' first law enforcement and cybersecurity dialogue on Oct. 4.

According to the MPS, the fugitive conducted multiple sexual assaults on children aged from six to 12 in the United States during July 2009 and August 2012. In June 2017, Interpol issued a "Red Notice" on the fugitive after a year of investigation by U.S. police.

The investigation showed that the fugitive fled to Shanghai in May. Chinese police played their part by locating and capturing him after receiving a notice from the United States.

The MPS said China and the United States will carry out further cooperation in chasing fugitives and illicit money.
