– Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of
Emmanuel Lugo-Fernandez, a 31-year old Hanover man.
In January of
2019, the Hanover Police Department investigated the alleged rape of a
16-yearold girl. As a result of their investigation they obtained an
arrest warrant charging Lugo-Fernandez with Rape by Forcible Compulsion
and lesser included offenses. Attempts to find Lugo-Fernandez were
unsuccessful and the case was adopted by the U.S. Marshals Service
(USMS) Fugitive Task Force.
Today at about 3:30 p.m., members of
the task force checked an apartment in the 2000 block of Basten Street
in Green Bay, Wisconsin and arrested Lugo-Fernandez without incident. He
was turned over to the Green Bay Police Department for arraignment and
to await extradition to Pennsylvania.
U.S. Marshal Martin Pane
said, “The U.S. Marshals Service recognizes the importance of bringing
those charged with serious sex crimes to justice as quickly as possible.
We give these type of cases our utmost attention. It is my hope that the
victim and family members will find comfort knowing the alleged attacker
is now in custody.”
The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle
District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 20 state, county and local
police agencies, including: the York City Police Department; the
Pennsylvania State Police; the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and
Parole; the York County Sheriff’s Office; the York County District
Attorney’s Office; the Northern York County Regional Police Department;
and, the Spring Garden Township Police Department - all of whom
participated in this arrest.
