An El Dorado County man who fled while being investigated for allegedly raping a 14-year-old in 1998 was arrested today in New Jersey.
Pasquale Patrick Senatore, 45, has been on the run since 2002, when investigators attempted to question him about allegations he forcibly raped a girl repeatedly over a three-month period.
Over the past few years, the U.S. Marshals Service and El Dorado County Sheriffs teamed to try to locate Senatore. He was located today in New Jersey when officers spotted him getting into a van.
Senatore was taken into custody without incident, according to the U.S. Marshal's office. He will be extradited back to El Dorado County, where he faces charges of forcible lewd acts on a child.
