A Millilani man was arrested in Puerto Rico on Monday after several weeks on the run.

Israel Malave, 35, was charged in 2013 with first-degree child sex assault.

He stopped showing up for court proceedings in June, and a $1 million warrant was issued late last month.

U.S. Marshals arrested Malave early Monday.

A spokesman for the Hawaii U.S. Marshals office confirmed the arrest, saying it was a joint investigation between federal authorities and Honolulu police.

It is unclear when Malave will be brought back.
