NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a man accused of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl on Staten Island has been arrested in New Jersey.

The NYPD says Daniel Nieto was taken into custody in East Brunswick on Tuesday.

Charges were pending his extradition to Staten Island.

Police say the suspect allegedly entered the girl’s home on Aug. 6 through an unlocked back door and raped the child in her bedroom before fleeing.

Nieto’s hometown wasn’t immediately available.

It wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on the allegations.
