PEMBERTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Authorities in New Jersey have arrested a man wanted in Indiana after nearly three years on the run.

Authorities apprehended 45-year-old Alfredo Burgo-Ramirez in a home in Pemberton Township.

He's been wanted on aggravated assault charges in Indiana since February 2010.

Burgo-Ramirez is accused of beating his girlfriend with a stick, dousing her with pepper spray, placing a knife on her throat and firing a rifle at her.

Federal marshals say he had a loaded handgun and rifle in the room where he was arrested.

Burgo-Ramirez is awaiting extradition.
