SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Police in Colorado have arrested a man sought in connection with the alleged rape of an 11-year-old Utah girl.

Castle Rock, Colorado police arrested the 22-year-old man Tuesday night at the home of a relative, Syracuse Police Lt. Tracy Jensen said.

Syracuse detectives tracked the man to Colorado after talking to co-workers and acquaintances who said he made frequent trips there to visit a brother. Castle Rock's police checked out several addresses and arrested the man at about 8 p.m., Jensen said.

The alleged rape occurred early Saturday in a Syracuse home where at least five families, including the man and his alleged victim, were living, Jensen said.

Police said one of the victim's family members interrupted the assault and the man fled.

It's unknown when the man will be returned to Utah, Jensen said. An extradition hearing could be held as early as today, he said.
