A Kenyan living in the United States was on Monday arrested by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in connection with an outstanding arrest warrant on second-rape charges in Baltimore County, Maryland.

Paul Kahungi Njoroge, 30, was born in Kenya before moving to the US.

He was arrested by officers at the airport after returning home from a trip to Canada and turned over to Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Njoroge had been flying to Baltimore from Toronto, where CBP officers had matched him to an outstanding arrest warrant in Baltimore County for second-degree rape.

He was then turned over to Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

"This collaboration is another example of how CBP contributes its unique border security authority to help keep our communities safe," said Adam Rottman, CBP Acting Port Director for the Area Port of Baltimore.

Njoroge is being accused of a second-degree rape that allegedly occurred on February 13th, 2017. His arrest warrant was initially filed against him on August 8th, 2017.

Criminal charges are merely allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.
