On-the-run rape suspect is found

An on-the-run rape suspect wanted in connection with a murder in Kilkeel, Co Down, has been arrested in Dublin.

Lithuanian national Devidas Paliutas, 27, was lifted during a police raid on a house in the north of the city.

Also arrested during the search operation was countryman Ernestas Rudeckas, who was also wanted in connection with the April 23 murder in Kilkeel of Dmytro Grysunov.

Gardai said the men were taken into custody after one of them made enquiries at a police station about applying for a passport. They will be brought to Northern Ireland to be questioned by the PSNI about the Grysunov killing.
