RICHMOND, Calif., Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Police in Richmond, Calif., said a man sought by authorities in connection with a 2009 gang-rape was arrested after turning himself in to authorities.

Richmond police said John Crane, 43, walked into the police department Tuesday and was immediately arrested on charges he allegedly took place in the rape of a Richmond High School student last fall, the Contra Costa Times (Walnut Creek, Calif.) reported.

Richmond police Sgt. Bisa French said Crane is the seventh suspect identified by police in the Oct. 24 gang-rape of a 16-year-old girl, whose identity was not released.

The lengthy rape and assault of the victim took place on the Richmond High School campus during the school's homecoming dance.

The Times said the other suspects in custody in the case range in age from 15 to 21. Their identities also were not released.
