A former Ellicott City resident was arrested in San Diego last week and charged with the February rape of an Asian woman in the Wheatfields community -- an attack that police linked to two other rapes of Asian women in the same area.Police said Tak Wha Tsang, 38, was arrested Thursday evening at his home in San Diego on a Howard County fugitive warrant. He is accused of the Feb. 5 assault on a 38-year-old woman who lived in the normally quiet Ellicott City community.That attack, and two others in the past year by a masked man wielding a knife, caused police to issue a community alert last month that a rapist appeared to be targeting Asian women in the Ellicott City area.

Asian women who work in ``America's worst sweatshop'' are suing such big-name clothing makers as Tommy Hilfiger, The Gap, The Limited, J. Crew and Wal-Mart, a lawyer for about 50,000 garment makers announced last month.The class-action suits accuse 18 U.S. manufacturers of selling garments made by workers who are mistreated by foreign subcontractors in the Pacific island of Saipan, a U.S. commonwealth. The lawsuits are the first to try to use U.S. racketeering laws to hold retailers accountable for worker conditions and seek about $1 billion in damages.
