Delaware police say rape suspect found living in car on Md. farm

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Police in Delaware say a rape suspect has been found living out of his car on a farm in Maryland.

Dover police said Saturday that federal marshals and the First State Fugitive Task Force arrested Isaac Pierce on Thursday on a farm in Princess Anne County in Maryland. Police had been looking for him since Sept. 16.

Police allege that Pierce was with the victim when they stopped near basketball courts at Delaware Technical and Community College. They say he physically assaulted the woman, then forced her to drive to a parking lot, where he allegedly sexually assaulted, strangled and threatened her.

Pierce is still in custody in Maryland and is awaiting an extradition hearing.
