    A man wanted for allegedly raping multiple children in Massachusetts was tracked to Nevada and arrested Sunday.

    Massachusetts State Police say 42-year-old Daniel Escalante, who was added to the department's most wanted list in March, fled the Bay State and was living under an alias in Reno.

    State police worked with the U.S. Marshals Service to locate Escalante, who was arrested by police in Reno. He's being held in Nevada on a fugitive from justice charge. He is expected to appear in Reno Justice Court Monday.

    Escalante, a former Marlboro resident, is suspected of sexually assaulting children in that town and the surrounding area. In Massachusetts, he faces five counts of rape of a child by force, two counts of assault with intent to rape a child and four counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.
