NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police on Tuesday night arrested an illegal immigrant wanted for raping an 11-year-old girl and robbing her parents at the family's Antioch apartment last Sunday evening.

Olbin Euceda is in the United States illegally, the Davidson County Sheriff's Office confirmed late Wednesday afternoon.

Once in custody, the 25-year-old admitted to Sunday's violent rape and robbery in addition to three other attacks in recent weeks in the Nashville area.

Euceda was located in a parking lot of a Nolensville Pike business around 6 p.m. Tuesday.

South precinct Commander Mike Alexander credits the area's Hispanic community for information that led to the capture of Euceda.

"This has been a very disturbing case for our community.  [The] bottom line is that Nashville's children and families can sleep much safer tonight," Alexander said in a press conference Tuesday night.

He added, "The outreach from the Hispanic community to the police department was very critical in this case."

Authorities believe Euceda was planning to leave the Mid-State and return to Honduras at the time of his arrest.

During an interview with detectives, Euceda admitted to robbing and sexually assaulting two women at their apartment in the Hickory Trace complex last Thursday, robbing four individuals at their apartment in the MapleCrest complex last Saturday and robbing three persons in their apartment at the Mission Stone Ridge complex on October 27, in addition to Sunday's attack at the Overlook Apartments.

"Anytime you have people being robbed going into their houses, or when they leave their houses, anytime you have sexual assaults involving minors, it becomes very, very important to us, because its very, very important to the community," Metro police Chief Steve Anderson added.

Euceda was booked into the Metro jail just after Midnight on eight counts of aggravated robbery, one count of child rape one count of aggravated rape and one count of being a fugitive from justice.  Police said Euceda was wanted on robbery charges in Alabama.

A federal immigration hold has also been placed against Euceda.

Euceda is expected to face additional charges as the cases advance through the justice system, police said.

His bond was set at $700,000.

According to police, Euceda was also arrested in 2005 and 2007 for driving without a license.

Authorities said he was held and released to immigration agents at the time of those arrests.
