REDDING, Calif. - The Redding Police Department arrested a man they say is suspected of raping a child in Washington.

Officers said 35-year-old David Capelli III was using methamphetamine and heroin in front of two children at a home on Polk Street. 

Further investigation revealed he had a 2005 felony warrant from Washington and has been evading arrest ever since.

Capelli is now behind bars at the Shasta County Jail, awaiting extradition to Washington.
