Long Time Mass Fugitive Captured In Maine

A Massachusetts man who disappeared while awaiting sentencing for three rapes 35 years ago has been arrested in Maine, where police say he’d been living since the 1980s.
 
    A Maine State Police spokesman said Gary Allen Irving was living in Gorham, Maine, with his wife and children when he was arrested Wednesday night. He’s due to appear in court Friday.
 
    Massachusetts police say Irving fled in 1978 while awaiting sentencing for three rapes in Norfolk County. In one of them, he knocked the victim off of her bike and raped her repeatedly.
 
    Irving, who’s in his 50s, has been on the Massachusetts Top 10 Most Wanted list for decades. Maine police will be looking at unsolved rapes to see Irving might have been involved.  (Associated Press)
