UPDATE: Escaped serial rapist caught

A serial rapist reported missing from a halfway house in Kingston early this week has been arrested in Cornwall.

City police say 51-year-old David Maracle was arrested at a shopping mall in the city last night.

Maracle was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in 1987, raping and choking a common-law partner in 1997, and that same year kidnapping a 14-year-old Brantford schoolgirl by gunpoint and repeatedly raping her.

He was under a long-term supervision order following completion of his sentence in 2015.
