U.S. Marshals Arrest Rape Suspect
Dayton, Ohio – U.S. Marshal Pete Tobin is pleased to announce that the U.S. Marshals Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested Ali Payne, age 39.

In July of 2017 Dayton Detectives responded to an address on Oakridge to investigate an alleged assault and rape. The Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) worked closely with the Dayton Police Department after Ali Payne was charged with Rape, Kidnapping, and Domestic Violence on July 20th. Through the investigation, SOFAST developed information that Ali Payne was residing at an address on Brooklyn Avenue in Dayton, Ohio. It is believed that Payne was avoiding police contact after the warrant was issued. SOFAST was able to track down and arrest Payne without incident. After the arrest Payne was then transported to the Montgomery County Jail.

U.S. Marshals SOFAST is a multi-jurisdictional task force comprised of the Dayton Police Department, Springfield Police Department, Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Miami County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, ICE, Montgomery County Prosecutors Office and Springboro Police Department.
