Accused fugitive arrested in Lexington after nearly 20 years on the run

After nearly 20 years on the run, a man accused of raping a child has been caught in central Kentucky.

U.S. Marshals arrested 62-year-old Patrick McGowan Monday on Crosby Drive in Lexington.

Investigators had been looking for him since 1990, when police in Seattle, Washington charged him with child molestation and statutory rape.

Police say the victim was a 5-year-old family member.

McGowan is now also charged with being a fugitive.
