American arrested over child abuse

AN American man facing charges of molesting children at a California day-care center has been arrested in Taiwan, police said yesterday.

Mark Lee Kaczmarczyk, 58, was arrested in Taipei on Sunday, said Ma Chen-hua, an official of Taiwan's Criminal Investigation Bureau. He said police were preparing deportation proceedings against him.

Kaczmarczyk faced six charges of molestation at a day-care center he operated with his wife in San Diego. He fled a US$2-million bail in December 2007 when undertaking compulsory treatment for sexual harassment, said police.

Taiwanese police tracked him down after the United States FBI told them he left Hong Kong for Taiwan in January.

Ma said Kaczmarczyk had expressed an interest in remaining on the island. "He said he likes Taiwan and would like to stay to run a day-care center," Ma said.
