FBI hunts Lankan-born American over rape of 6-year-old

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is hunting a Sri Lankan-born American, Chaminda Prabhath Palliyaguru, wanted over the alleged rape of a six-year-old victim on March 7, 2020; in Franklin County, Ohio.

The FBI said that on April 21, 2020, an arrest warrant was issued for Palliyaguru in the Court of Common Pleas, Franklin County, Ohio, after he was charged with the rape of a minor under the age of 10, and three counts of gross sexual imposition of a minor less than 13 years of age.

On April 22, 2020, Palliyaguru was charged federally with 'unlawful flight to avoid prosecution' by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Columbus, Ohio, and a Federal warrant was issued for his arrest.

Palliyaguru was last seen in San Diego, California, near the U.S./Mexico border.

He has ties to New Albany, Ohio, and Anaheim, California, and is known to travel to Sri Lanka on a semi-frequent basis. The FBI has requested anyone who has any information concerning this person to contact the local FBI office, or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
