ATLANTA (AP) — A former Macon pastor accused of raping an underage girl two years ago has been arrested in Atlanta.

The Macon Telegraph ( ) reports 39-year-old Yohandry Bravo was stopped Tuesday during a traffic stop in Atlanta. Bibb County Sheriff's Office public affairs officers say the Atlanta policeman learned about Bravo's warrant and took him to jail in Clayton County before Bibb County deputies picked him up.

Bravo was accused of raping a 16-year-old girl in January 2013 at his house. Officials say Bravo was regularly featured in Macon Regional Crimestoppers, but eluded capture.

It is unclear if Bravo has a lawyer.
