Accused Rapist Captured

A man wanted for raping an 11-year-old girl in Syracuse has been caught. Detectives say 22-year-old Benito Martinez was captured by police in Castle Rock, Colorado.

Police say Martinez raped an 11-year-old girl while staying at a home with 5 different families living in it. They say a family member walked in on Martinez having sex with the victim.

Police quickly issued a warrant for his arrest, which led to his capture Tuesday evening in Colorado.
