Arrested for Rape

We reported yesterday about a California man believed to be on the run after he was accused of sexually assaulting a deaf teenager who had hitched a ride with him. Here's an update. Authorities now say Marcos Esteban Ortega has been arrested in Bell Gardens and is now behind bars. A former co-worker identified him from a surveillance photo where the girl was picked up. The Hispanic 16-year-old wanted to go to San Diego to visit friends.
