Authorities arrest Illinois fugitive in Chicago

URBANA, Ill. (AP) — After two years on the run, Illinois authorities say they've arrested a 31-year-old personal trainer wanted on charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a child under the age of 10.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart announced Saturday that Kenji Haley, who was wanted on charges in Urbana, was arrested Thursday at a home in Chicago. Police investigators say Haley would target single mothers with young children and they believe he has been molesting children for years.

Authorities say Haley is in the custody of Champaign County. A woman who answered a phone number listed under Haley's name on Saturday said she had no comment.
