have already linked him to another crime and that she came across him by chance. >> it was random, ma makes it even scarier. >> detectives say they were lucky that they found her alive. the more time that passes the less likely of the chances for survival. police in virginia recognized the man in the surveillance video as the suspect in a similar case. they were looking for 37-year-old delvin barnes for raping and trying to kill a 16-year-old girl. they captured an image of the suspect's car and were able to read the name of the dealership. they called the dealership and had them activate a gps he installed on the car if he defaulted on the loan. they believe he may have been involved in a robbery in the northeast last week and they are

public and i have to thank everybody in the news media for getting out the information. it was a complete circle of communication and effort. >> the traffic camera -- >> you are listening to officers involved in the rescue of carlesha freeland-gaither, you heard detective james sloan there, he said he would not say something if he didn't believe. he delivered on the promise of bringing carlesha back to her family and her family is grateful for that today. >> detective sloan is resisting the badge the term hero, lots calling that detective and his partner a hero today. no doubt carlesha freeland-gaither's family is among them. lets switch live to chad pradelli, he is in maryland where the suspect delvin barnes was arraigned today via video conference. >> reporter: wearing an orange jump suit, and giving answers
