Southern Regional police have arrested a child rape suspect they had been searching for all weekend.

Phillip Langley, 34, was wanted for sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in Conestoga Township. The incidents are said to have occurred between November 2011 and May 2012.

Investigators said a tip from a citizen led them to Langley Sunday morning. He was arrested in Providence Township without incident.

Langley is charged with rape, sexual assault, indecent assault, corruption of minors, and unlawful contact with a minor -- all felonies. He was taken to Lancaster County Prison, but bail information was not immediately made available.

He is already registered in the Pennsylvania State Police Megan's Law database for a prior offense that occurred in Cecil County, Maryland, police said.
