LOS ANGELES (AP) - An Army private wanted for the alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old Los Angeles County girl has been arrested in Florida.

Daniel Brazelton prompted a nationwide manhunt when he escaped from military custody in Georgia on Feb. 11.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Captain Michael Parker says Brazelton was arrested Friday night at a motel in Daytona Beach, Florida. Parker says Brazelton was not armed and was taken into custody without incident.

Brazelton escaped from Army personnel Feb. 11 in Hinesville, Georgia, as he was being returned to jail following a medical appointment.
