The man charged with abducting missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham has been arrested, police said.

Jesse Matthew, 22, was charged Tuesday with abduction with intent to defile in the disappearance in the disappearance of second-year student Hannah Graham, who vanished after leaving an off-campus party on Sept. 13. Police believe Matthew was the last person seen with Graham early that morning.

Police had previously searched Matthew’s apartment and car, but at that time said they had no probable cause to detain him for questioning. Matthew had not been seen since he sped away from the Charlottesville police station Saturday after a brief interview, when he was only considered a person of interest in Graham’s disappearance. It isn’t clear what led police to charge the patient technician.
