Man wanted for Pa. rape caught in CR

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - A man wanted in a violent rape in northeastern Pennsylvania has been captured in Iowa.  The U.S. Marshals Service arrested 27-year-old Nery Adolfo Perez-Duarte in Cedar Rapids Thursday.  U.S. Marshal Michael Regan says Perez-Duarte is accused of raping a Meshoppen woman on Dec. 27.  The victim was beaten, raped, thrown down a set of stairs and pulled back up the stairs by her hair. She suffered a broken leg, bloody mouth and black eye in the attack.  Perez-Duarte is a native of Guatemala. He's believed to be in the United States illegally. He awaits extradition to Pennsylvania to face charges.  It's not clear whether he has a lawyer.
