Suspect Arrested in White Center Rape
DNA Hit Led to Convicted Felon
Police in Oklahoma arrested a 25 year old male for the March rape of a female in the White Center area.
The case was solved when the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab developed a DNA profile from evidence collected at the scene which matched the male. He had apparently been visiting King County from Oklahoma when the crime was committed.
The King County Prosecutor’s Office filed charges of Rape in the 1st degree and Assault in the 1st degree. An arrest warrant was issued and law enforcement in Oklahoma arrested him yesterday.
The suspect will have to go through the extradition process before being returned to King County.
