The man accused of raping and infecting an 8 year-old girl with the herpes virus has been located and arrested by the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force this afternoon. The 40 year-old suspect had disappeared after the victim’s mother reported the crime to detectives last June. The Task Force located the suspect at his former employer’s place of business and arrested him for his outstanding warrant for the 2nd degree rape of a child.
