|U.S. Marshals Arrest Rape Suspect|
Springfield, OH - This afternoon, the U.S. Marshal’s Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested Albert Scott, age 64. The Springfield Police Department issued an arrest warrant for Albert Scott on 4 counts of rape and 1 count of Gross Sexual Imposition. The charges stem from incidents that occurred between 1992 and 1997. The victim, who was 6 years old in 1992, recently came forward and reported the alleged conduct to the Springfield Police Department.
U.S. Marshals SOFAST, along with Springfield Police officers, acted quickly once the warrant was issued. Through the investigation, SOFAST developed information that Scott was staying at an address on North Limestone Street in Springfield. SOFAST went to the residence and located Scott inside.
