Tanbir Singh, 20, was arrested around 8 a.m. on Tuesday by the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force after he was wanted by the Lucas County Sheriff's Department for rape.

According to Lucas County court records, Singh was the suspect in a rape that occurred on Sept. 12, 2015. He was recently named a suspect and the case was turned over to the Marshals Task Force in Toledo.

Police said once it was determined that Singh was possibly living in the Twinsburg area, Task Force members in Cleveland and Painesville began investigating leads.

Within a day of the Task Force receiving the case, Singh was arrested at a home located in the 2000 block of Meadowood Boulevard in Twinsburg, officials reported. 

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott added, “Perpetrators of crimes like this cannot run and hide from their charges.  We will work with our state and local partners to bring the fugitive to justice, and safety to all communities that fall under our jurisdiction.”
