Maryland child rape suspect arrested in Gwinnett County

Deputies in Gwinnett County have arrested a suspect accused of raping children in Maryland.

Officials say 33-year-old Franklin Rodriquez was captured without incident in Lilburn on Friday.

Gwinnett County deputies said Rodriquez is suspected of raping three young children.

Deputies assigned to the Fugitive Unit helped US marshals locate the suspect.

"When one of the children made an outcry and police were notified, 33-year-old suspect Franklin Rodriquez abandoned his business, packed his things and fled the state," the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department said on Facebook.

Rodriquez is awaiting extradition to Maryland.
