Authorities in Wayne County have arrested an alleged rapist after he was found hiding in a bedroom.

Officers issued an arrest warrant for 42-year-old Joshua Daniel Pelt after a report about a sexual assault involving a 12-year-old was filed on Dec. 7.

Authorities said when Pelt learned about the warrants he moved in an effort to elude police.

However, Pelt was later found hiding at an acquaintance's home.

Pelt has been charged with first-degree rape of a child and indecent liberties with a child. He is currently in jail under a $510,000 bond.
