SYDNEY (AP) -- New South Wales police said Friday that Australian detectives were sent to the U.S. to assist in the extradition of Paul Douglas Peters.

Peters has been held in a Louisville, Kentucky, jail since his August arrest.

Police declined to release details of his travel arrangements, though TV footage showed Peters getting off a plane at a Los Angeles airport.

Peters is accused of attacking 18-year-old Madeleine Pulver.

The teen was studying at home on Aug. 3 when a masked man broke into her home and tethered the bomb-like device to her neck.

The man left behind a note demanding money.
