A serial rapist wanted by the FBI has been arrested in Geneva County.
Initially, 36-year-old Ronald Limos Ritualo was arrested on identity theft charges.
He reportedly has been known as Erik Carlsen, but Slocomb Police Chief, David Land, says the real Erik Carlsen lives in New Hampshire.
Over the past years, he and his girlfriend have lived in both Houston and Geneva Counties.
After police ran Ritualo's fingerprints, they matched those of a fugitive from St. Louis, Missouri. Ritualo is an unregistered sex-offender who is wanted on several rape charges. He was living near Slocomb High School.
Ritualo is being held under a $50,000 bond at the Coffee County Jail. The FBI is working to extradite him back to Missouri to face rape charges.
