Newton County Sheriff's officials said 57-year-old David Wesley Crawford turned himself in to Alachua Police. A few minutes later, Alachua officers arrested 36-year-old Donald Mac Brown after he tried to carjack a woman.

The two fled Newton County early last week following allegations they molested and sexually assaulted a 5-year-old girl.

Authorities said both men were armed when they were arrested, but gave up without incident.

The men are being held at the Alachua County Jail. Brown is charged with armed burglary, kidnapping, aggravated battery, resisting arrest and other charges from Georgia. Crawford is being held on a concealed weapon violation and additional charges from Georgia.
