MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - West Virginia State Police arrested a Lancaster, Pa. man wanted on a rape charge Tuesday morning after the man allegedly threatened to kill himself while he was stopped with a flat tire on W.Va. 901, police said.

Todd T. Leuthold, 31, of Lancaster, was arraigned on a felony fugitive charge in Berkeley County Magistrate Court. He was released from jail later Tuesday on $50,000 bond, according to an Eastern Regional Jail official.

State Police Sgt. Jim Humphrey said the Lancaster Police Department called the State Police post in Martinsburg at 3:25 a.m. Tuesday after a man on a cellular phone called Lancaster police from a Berkeley County road and threatened suicide.

Lancaster police told troopers the man was wanted on a statutory rape charge in Lancaster County, Pa., Humphrey said. Lancaster police Tuesday had no information on when or why the rape charge was filed.
