South Carolina Fugitive Caught in Kansas

Associated Press - June 1, 2015 7:08 am

A South Carolina man who was being sought for kidnapping and assaulting a woman has been arrested in Overland Park.

A 51-year-old man was arrested without incident just before 6 p.m. Sunday and was taken to the Johnson County jail. The suspect had been sought by the U.S. Marshals Service and Kansas City-area law enforcement agencies.

The suspect is wanted in Lexington County, South Carolina, where he’s accused of assaulting a woman in March 2014. Authorities say the woman was tied, beaten and choked before she escaped.

According to authorities, the suspect had been working as a maintenance worker at a Johnson County apartment complex.
