Police have found and arrested Josh Gurto, the man wanted for the rape and murder of a 13-month-old Conneaut girl.

Gurto was spotted inside a gas station in Ohio Township, Pennsylvania Thursday, leading officials to search the woods near the area. They found an old campsite, but no sign of Gurto.

Police say Gurto was found at a Sheetz gas station in Franklin Park, Pennsylvania and arrested early on Oct. 27.

Gurto allegedly raped and killed 13-month-old Serreniti Sutley, the daughter of his girlfriend, at an apartment complex in Conneaut in early October.

The girl was found unresponsive in her bedroom by her 22-year-old mother suffering from cardiac arrest.

The preliminary autopsy revealed that Sutley died from blunt force trauma to the head.
