A Belfast rapist who had fled to Donegal in breach of the conditions of his release has been located.

Joseph McCabe handed himself into a local police station on Tuesday morning.

He was arrested and is currently helping police with their enquiries.

Mr McCabe, who raped a pensioner, and another man - Casey Morgan - described as violence-prone, have been living in west Donegal for the past fortnight.

Both are wanted by the PSNI: McCabe (29) for breaching the terms of his release from jail after serving half of a 14-year term for the rape of a 64-year-old woman in Belfast, while Morgan (18) has been described as an extremely violent offender with convictions for burglary.

Police are still searching for Mr Morgan.
