Child sex abuse suspect arrested in Lower Allen

A man wanted in Texas for sexual offenses against a seven-year-old child was arrested Friday in Cumberland County.

The U.S. Marshal's Service said it took 24-year-old Austin L. Poole into custody in the Capital City Mall in Lower Allen Township.

Poole allegedly committed sexual offenses against the child in El Paso County. An arrest warrant charging him with sexual abuse of a child was issued September 4.

After his arrest, Poole was turned over to Lower Allen police for processing. He was arraigned as a fugitive-from-justice and is currently awaiting extradition back to Texas.
