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.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
