CLEVELAND (AP) - Police in Cleveland have arrested a convicted rapist after they found as many as six bodies at his house.

Police spokesman Lt. Thomas Stacho (STAH'-koh) says 50-year-old Anthony Sowell was arrested about noon Saturday in his inner-city neighborhood in Cleveland. He says charges are pending.

Stacho says officers have found three bodies and believe they have discovered three more but are awaiting confirmation from the coroner.

The first two bodies were found Thursday night when police went to Sowell's home to arrest him on charges of felonious assault and rape. Police say he had spent 15 years in prison for a 1989 rape.
