Posted on October 25th, 2011 No Comments

A 27-year old Houston man was recently linked to an incident of rape through DNA evidence.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, a sample of DNA evidence found at the scene of the crime matches a DNA sample in their database.

The crime occurred in June at around 4:30 a.m. when an elderly woman was confronted by a man hiding behind a sofa in her home and sexually assaulted.  The man left after she told him that family members would be arriving at the home shortly.

Police also say that the suspect has family who lives blocks from the home in northwest Houston where the 72-year old victim was raped.

The suspect has been charged with rape of an elderly or disabled person.
