MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - An accused rapist from Maui is expected to be extradited to the United Kingdom to face charges of attacking a woman 23 years ago.

48-year-old Salvador Orozco appeared in court Tuesday and waived his right for his extradition hearing.

British authorities will now be able to fly Orozco to Great Britain anytime in the next 60 days.

Officials say he allegedly attacked and raped a woman at a bus station in 1990.

They were able to track Orozco down in Kahului two weeks ago and arrest him.
