BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WDEL) – A man wanted in connection to a March 2011 rape of a 6-year-old girl has been arrested in South Carolina, Dover Police announced Friday.

According to authorities, police learned of Juan Carlos Hernandez and the second-degree rape of a minor in October 2018 after the victim confided in a school therapist.

Dover Police and the U.S. Marshal’s First State Fugitive Task Force were notified by the FBI that Hernandez, not a legal U.S. resident, was taken into custody after they received a tip he may have been in Beaufort County.

He is awaiting extradition to Delaware to face charges.
