SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Sioux Falls police say a 41-year-old man accused of raping a 14-year-old girl and firing a gun as she fled has been apprehended in Pipestone, Minnesota.

Authorities say the assault allegedly happened Thursday in a gray 1999 Chevy Express cargo van.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the girl reported that the man threatened her with a gun as they traveled in the van after she was raped. She jumped from the moving vehicle to get away and heard a gunshot. Clemens says a bullet hole was found in a nearby house.

Police identified the suspect as Frederick James McAbee. They say warrants have been issued on several charges including attempted first-degree murder, kidnapping and rape. Bond was set at $2 million.

Attorney information for McAbee was not immediately available.
