EVERETT, Wash. -- The Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force tracked down and arrested a 40-year-old man Tuesday afternoon who was wanted for allegedly raping and transmitting herpes to an 8-year-old girl.

The suspect, who has not been identified, was arrested at his former employer's place of business, according to Shari L. Ireton with the Snohomish County sheriff's office.
