The U.S. Marshals Service say they've taken a man into custody they believe is the East Coast Rapist. He was arrested in New Haven, Connecticut Friday afternoon. His name hasn't been released and authorities don't have furthur details at this point.

The arrest comes after police started posting sketches of the suspect on electronic billboards in states where attacks occurred including Connecticut, Virginia, Maryland and Rhode Island.

Police set up also set up a Web site about the case. Fairfax County Police Detective John Kelly says the site generated 44,000 hits in 12 hours after it was launched late in February.
