A child-rape suspect wanted by Puyallup police was arrested Monday in unincorporated Thurston County.
There was probable cause to arrest Marcus Cordova, a 39-year-old transient, on suspicion of first-degree rape of a child in a Nov. 5 incident involving a 7-year-old girl, police spokesman Scott Engle said last week.
Cordova had been living with the girl’s mother, Engle said.
He also was wanted on a warrant from Colorado for violating probation, Engle said.
