DNA leads to suspect in Harris County rape case

Posted on July 13th, 2011 No Comments

Harris County deputies say that DNA has led them to a suspect in the rape of a 14-year old girl that occurred 3 years ago at Cypress Springs High.  The girl told police that two men raped her behind the school.

Authorities reported that the DNA matched a DNA sample from an 18-year old man serving time in jail in another county on a burglary conviction.  With the DNA match, police will transfer the man to the Harris County Jail where he will await trial for a charge of sexual assault.

Before the DNA match, police had no suspects in the rape case.  The teen’s mother says she is certain of her son’s innocence.  She says the young man expressed interest in going to college to study business or law.
