Nicholas Thrash, 34, has been on the run since police accused him of raping and impregnating his girlfriend’s 10-year-old daughter.
The man was found thanks to the Indiana citizens who kept their eyes peeled for the monster, and were able to call their tips into the police station.
Thrash is now facing 10 felony counts of child molestation, and is being held on a $500,000 bail. Hopefully, the high bail will keep him in prison and from disappearing a second time.
The victim’s mother has also been arrested on felony charges, this time for child neglect.
The 10-year-old was brought in for a routine doctor’s examination when they noticed that she was pregnant. After being pressed, she told doctors and authorities what her mother’s boyfriend had been doing to her.
Marion Police Department announced the capture of 34-year-old Nicholas Thrash on Wednesday afternoon, thanks to the tips of citizens monitoring the situation.
“Thanks to your tips this man was Arrested moments ago here in Marion. Thank you Marion Citizens for working with your local police department!” police announced on social media.
Thrash faces 10 counts of felony child molestation and is right now being held on $500,000 bond at Grant County Jail, according to WTHR.
