SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

A man who's been on the run for 35 years after being convicted of rape here in Massachusetts has been caught.

State police told us Gary Allen Irving was arrested shortly after 9 p.m. last night at a home in Maine.

Irving was convicted of three rapes that happened in Norfolk County in 1978, but the start of his sentence was delayed by a judge when Irving fled.

Irving, who is in his 50s, has been on the Massachusetts top 10 most wanted list for decades.
