WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A man accused of child rape in York County, Pa., who has been on the run for more than three years, was arrested Wednesday morning in Warren.

Shawn Kevin Fake, 45, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in the 800 block of Kenilworth Drive, according to a news release by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Fake had no identification on him and initially gave arresting officers a false name. He was arrested without incident and taken back to Pennsylvania.

Fake was charged by the York City Police Department in March 2011 with 26 counts, including forcible rape, rape of persons less than 13, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with persons under 16, sexual assault and corruption of minors.

In 2013, Fake was named to the Pennsylvania State Police’s Ten Most Wanted fugitive list, the release stated.

Investigators pursued leads on Fake’s whereabouts in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Ohio. Police learned he evaded capture by using false names and living as a homeless person, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

The marshals were assisted by the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force, Warren police and Youngstown police.
