Mass. Man In 1992 Child Rape Case Arrested In Colombia
BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts state police say a 71-year-old man sought on 1992 Boston-area child sex abuse charges has been arrested in Colombia.
Police said Richard Haugh jumped bail on the Belmont charges including child rape, indecent assault and providing obscene material to a minor. Police said he also faces federal postal fraud charges.
State police said Haugh was arrested Friday by U.S. agents and Colombian police as he traveled with suitcases in a taxi from Cali to Cartagena.
State police said they located Haugh in Colombia last year, but he moved. In January investigators located him again.
Police said he has been arraigned as a fugitive in Colombia. He’s expected to be brought to Miami as soon as Sunday to face the federal charges, then returned to Massachusetts.
It’s not known if he has a U.S. lawyer.
