MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A man charged with the 2009 rape of a 14-year-old New York girl has been sent to the U.S. from India.
Nassau County prosecutors say 32-year-old Amit Singh was ordered held without bail during a court appearance Monday. He is charged with rape, sexual abuse and child endangerment.
His attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
Singh is charged with attacking the girl in 2009 as she walked to her high school in Elmont on Long Island.
He allegedly fled to India, where he was later arrested trying to board a flight to Thailand.
Prosecutors say he fled New York the day before the victim identified him in a photo array. They say he was linked by DNA evidence.
