ATLANTA (CBS46) -

An Atlanta man managed to evade law enforcement for nearly a month before being captured by U.S. Marshall on Tuesday in West Virginia.

A task force arrested Michael Colclough at business on Caperton Boulevard in Martinsburg. Authorities believe he was an employee at the business.

The 47-year-old fled Atlanta following a July 10 alleged aggravated assault with a weapon during a domestic dispute and alleged cruelty towards a child.

He is currently being held in Eastern Regional Jail while he awaits extradition to Atlanta.
