A Dothan man who fled Alabama to avoid prosecution for sex crimes faces similar charges in Florida.
Nineteen-year-old Mark Anthony Beecham was arrested by U.S Marshals last Friday in Tallahassee.
He was picked up on rape and sodomy warrants out of Dothan.
Tallahassee Police have charged him with attacking a Florida A&M University student.
The young woman was kidnapped and sexually assaulted January 14th.
Beecham's being held without bond in the Leon County Jail.
Alabama authorities plan to extradite Beecham back to Dothan, but they say he will likely have to face the Florida charges first.
