WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- The U.S. Marshals Service says a Kansas man charged with giving a girl drugs and raping her has been caught in Delaware.

Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal William David of the District of Delaware says 19-year-old Edwin R. Ramirez of Johnson County was sought by the Overland Park Police Department in Kansas on an outstanding warrant charging him with rape, sexual battery and contributing to a child's misconduct. Officials say Ramirez provided drugs to two teenage girls, then raped one of them in January.

After deputies developed information that placed Ramirez in Delaware, David says deputies and Wilmington police raided a Wilmington home this week and arrested Ramirez as a fugitive from justice.
