A man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman in Kittery on July 10 was arrested Thursday in Florida.

Kittery police said the woman had accepted a ride home from an evening out when she was attacked by the male driver. The woman was able to escape and ran to the home of a Kittery resident, who called police.

Kittery police said their investigation led them to a suspect, Alhassane Camara, 43, of Rollinsford, New Hampshire, who had left New England for Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

U.S. marshals and Fort Lauderdale police helped arrest Camara, who has been charged with being a fugitive from justice. He will be formally charged with felony gross sexual assault when he is returned to Maine.
