DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The U.S. Marshal’s SOFAST arrested 20-year-old Andrew Liles for multiple charges of rape and gross sexual imposition.
The arrest happened early Thursday in Dayton.
A Shelby County grand jury indicted Liles on 6 counts of Rape, 2 counts of Gross Sexual Imposition, Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor, and 2 counts of Corrupting a Minor with Drugs. The charges stem from an incident reported in August of 2015.
According to information from the U.S. Marshals, Liles fled Shelby County, believing he could avoid the warrants. Through an investigation, SOFAST learned Liles was hiding at an address on Nassau Street in Dayton. The Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team located the residence and gave Liles an early morning wakeup call. Liles was apprehended and transported to the Montgomery County Jail. Liles is now in the Shelby County jail.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Nathan Lupica stated, “Through cooperative efforts such as SOFAST, dangerous fugitives who prey on children will be brought to justice”.
