DENVER (AP) - U.S. Marshals say they have arrested a child rapist who cut off his GPS monitor and disappeared from Denver one week ago.

The U.S. Department of Justice said Eric Hartwell, 51, was taken into custody in Norfolk, Va., on Friday.

Authorities say Hartwell was captured at a motel on Military Highway. They say Hartwell refused to surrender and officers broke down the door to arrest him.

Hartwell was serving a three-year sentence for refusing to register as a sex offender in Colorado.

He served time for failing to register in Washington and cut off his ankle bracelet a week after being paroled there in 2009. He was later captured in Carrollton, Texas, and sentenced to five years in federal prison in 2010 for failing to register.
