Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Eddie Poteet, a 36-year old man on charges of rape of a child and other related offenses.
On August 4, 2015, the York City Police Department obtained an arrest warrant charging Poteet with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with child, rape of child, indecent assault-person less than 13 years of age, and corruption of minors.
On August 7, 2015, members of the USMS Fugitive Task Force arrested Poteet without incident at a trailer park in York, Pa. Poteet was turned over to local authorities pending judicial proceedings in the case.
United States Marshal Pane stated, “Fugitives charged with serious felony offenses, especially those wanted for crimes against children are given one of our highest priorities. It is my sincere hope that the victim will find some measure of comfort knowing that the alleged attacker has been brought to justice.”
The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the York City Police Department, York County District Attorney’s Office, York County Sheriff’s Office and the Latimore Township Police Department.
