U.S Marshals arrest a Canadian fugitive aboard a cruise ship docked at the Port of Tampa.

TAMPA — U.S Marshals arrested a Canadian fugitive Monday aboard a Carnival Cruise ship docked at the Port of Tampa.

Officials say Steven Mark Anthony Requena fled Canada after raping a woman two years ago. According to Canadian officials, he placed a scalpel to a victim's throat while he sexually assaulted her and threatened to kill her.

Upon running the ship's manifest, officials with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security noticed his name was flagged. His charges from 2007 include assault with a weapon, forcible confinement, sexual assault with a weapon and uttering threats of death or bodily harm.

Requena was arrested at 7 a.m. and transported to the federal courthouse in Tampa to appear on those charges.
