U.S. Marshals arrested a wanted accused child rapist from Federal Way Wednesday morning in Texas.
Thanks to Crime Stoppers tips from Washington's Most Wanted viewers, Steven L. Huey was found in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Huey, 34, was charged with first-degree child rape and both first- and second-degree child molestation on Nov. 25, 2013 in King County Superior Court.
Huey allegedly raped a younger relative between 2009-2011 and molested her for several years since she was 11 years old, according to charging documents.
The mother reported the alleged abuse in July 2013.
The girl told police Huey would "punch her arms or drag her by the wrists" if she refused his sexual advances, according to probable cause documents. Huey later admitted to the rape, the documents continue.
“As I said in my interview with Washington’s Most Wanted, Huey’s crime is one of the most offensive," said Cathy Schrock, Federal Way Police spokesperson. "A child should be free from criminal predators in their own home. The Federal Way Police Department is proud of the victim’s courage to report the crimes against her. We are all thankful to have this dangerous felon off the streets.”
Schrock added that Huey is expected to be extradited to King County.
