CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The U.S. Marshals announced a man accused of raping a woman at a park in Plain Township in September has been arrested.

Investigators said 29-year-old Carlos E. Castaneda was apprehended on Tuesday.

He was arrested on the 500 block of Bedford Avenue in Canton, according to investigators.
