A 25-year-old man suspected of sexual abuse of an underage girl in Oulu has been taken into custody in Germany, Oulu police said.

The man was arrested in the city of Saarbrücken in western Germany on Wednesday evening.

The suspect, who is one of eight men being investigated for sexual offences against minors, will likely be extradited to Finland by the end of January, police said.

The man had already been taken into custody by German authorities in December, but he was released due to a communication lapse before he could be transferred to Finland.

Police subsequently issued an international warrant for his arrest.

The man is suspected of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor, aggravated rape and assault.
