Toronto police say a man who is wanted in Philadelphia for rape, among other offences, was arrested Saturday in Oshawa.

The Toronto Police Service issued a news release during the noon hour Saturday requesting the public’s help in locating 20-year-old Maurice Dayard.

Police said he was wanted on a Canada-wide immigration warrant issued by the Canada Border Services Agency “for being a danger to the public and unlikely to appear for a minister’s hearing.”
