Joshua, Besaw, 35, of Thompson, Conn., faced with a variety of federal charges, including kidnapping and transporting a minor in connection with illicit sexual activity, Connecticut, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office said. It was on Wednesday arrested after police spent almost two months in the identification of a suspect.

Besaw has allegedly lured a 12-year-old girl off her bike and in the car, in a park, in Webster, Mass., on the 31st of May. Court documents said Besaw told the girl his name was Chuck, and he needed help because his girlfriend’s parents hated him, Western Mass, News reported.

The man then carried the girl to have the lines in Connecticut, where he was pulled over in a wooded area and sexually assaulted her, the Webster Police Department said. He eventually dropped the girl off at Dudley, Mass. where she was running to be a resident of the house, and called her mother.

The police have asked the public to be on Facebook in June to help officials in the identification of a suspect in the case. The investigators obtained surveillance video from a number of homes and businesses that will lead them to Besaw. On July 10, the researchers collected cigarette butts and that they were witnesses to Besaw and throw it away. The DNA on the cigarette butt matched the DNA obtained from the victim on May 31, the police and the public prosecutor’s office said.
