A South Korean wanted for rape in his country has been arrested in southern Vietnam where he had been hiding.
The Ministry of Public Security said in a statement Tuesday that Kim Suk Tai, 55, was arrested at a guesthouse in Dong Nai Province this month.
There is an Interpol warrant for him for raping a masseuse at a massage parlor in South Korea last year. He fled the country soon after that.
Vietnamese law enforcement started looking for him after receiving an alert from Interpol. They found he was hiding in the south and had hired someone to prepare papers for leaving the country.
The police are investigating if Kim has committed any crimes in Vietnam.
