Placer County Sheriff's detectives apprehended a man they had been seeking for more than a month on rape charges. The man was wanted for raping a severely disabled woman in a Penryn care home where he worked last year.

Detectives arrested Marquise Montgomery, 22, in Elverta, for the rape of a person unable to give consent. In November, 2011, detectives were first notified by the care home that the woman was pregnant.

Montgomery was identified as a person of interest early in the investigation, but detectives were unable to locate him. Other male employees at the care facility volunteered to give DNA samples and were all cleared of any involvement.

Eventually, investigators were able to get a DNA sample from a relative of Montgomery, which was tested and as a result, enabled detectives to obtain a warrant for Montgomery's arrest. Once the warrant was received, detectives actively sought him for more than a month.

He is being held at the Placer County Jail with bail set at $150,000. He is scheduled to appear in court Friday morning.
