LOS ANGELES (AP) — Officials at Los Angeles International Airport have arrested a man suspected of rape and unlawful sexual contact with a minor before he could board a plane to Japan.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Jaime Ruiz said Wednesday that 21-year-old Tyler Ross Fitzgerald was wanted in Portsmouth, Ohio, where an arrest warrant was issued last month.

Fitzgerald was intercepted before he could board the flight to Narita, Japan on Monday.

Ruiz says extradition to return Fitzgerald to Ohio is underway.
