Fugitive Rape Suspect Who Allegedly Impregnated 12-Year-Old Girl Captured in NYC: U.S. Marshals

A rape suspect who allegedly impregnated his 12-year-old victim in Massachusetts, then fled the state, has been located by U.S. Marshals in New York City, authorities say.

Angel Acevedo, 39, was wanted on a state warrant out of Springfield, Massachusetts, on two counts of rape of a child with force, U.S. Marshals said.

Authorities executed an operation to locate and arrest Acevedo after they traced him to an East Harlem address, authorities said. 

He is currently being held by the New York City Department of Corrections until he's taken back to Massachusetts, the U.S. Marshals said. 

It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
