FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — A man facing child rape charges in Massachusetts has been arrested in Texas as he tried to board a plane heading to his native Guatemala.

The MetroWest Daily News reports that U.S. Customs and Border Protection arrested 48-year-old Octaviano Boche Arevalo last week at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and he remains in custody in Texas.

He is charged with raping a boy in Framingham multiple times over three years. Authorities say he knew the child. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer who can respond to the charges.

Customs officials say Arevalo has been living in the U.S. illegally and he has been ordered deported five times.
