SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - Police in Springfield, Oregon, say they arrested a man who is wanted in Louisiana on charges of rape, incest and battery.

Sgt. Keith Seanor says patrol officers dispatched to a burglary in progress Thursday used a stun gun on Gammion McCloud after he failed to follow police instructions.

Seanor says investigators later learned of the arrest warrant out of Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana. He says the department has contacted Louisiana authorities about extradition.

Police were called at 2:30 a.m. by someone who said a stranger just walked into their apartment. Seanor says the caller chased the man into a common area of the apartments as officers arrived. The suspect then jumped over a fence, but couldn’t get away.
