Arrest Made in Killing of Man Found Shot on Bank of New Jersey Creek

Investigators say Danny Diaz-Delgado was face down with his hands tied behind his back & tape around his face.

An arrest has been made in the murder of a man found bound and shot multiple times on the bank of a New Jersey creek a week ago.

The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office said 29-year-old Rufus Thompson of Trenton was arrested Saturday at a friend's house by county homicide investigators and federal marshals.

Thompson is charged with murder, felony murder, robbery, kidnapping and weapons offenses. It's unclear whether he has an attorney and a listed number for him couldn't be found Saturday.

Authorities said 20-year-old Danny Diaz-Delgado was found March 24 face-down near Assunpink Creek in Hamilton Township with his hands tied behind his back and tape around his face.

Officials said Diaz-Delgado had multiple gunshot wounds to the torso, head and leg and was pronounced dead at the scene.
