LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police have made an arrest in a 2004 sexual assault based off DNA evidence.
42-year-old Brandon McGuire was arrested Wednesday on sexual assault charges. Police said the victim in the 2004 case accepted a ride from the suspect who then drove her to the Mount Charleston area where she was sexually assaulted at knifepoint.
In 2012, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Forensic Lab linked a 1998 homicide and a 2004 sexual assault based on DNA. Both of these crimes were recently assigned to cold case detectives.
On Monday, a search of the local DNA Index System database matched a Nevada arrestee to these DNA profiles. With this new information, detectives were able to develop probable cause to arrest McGuire in the 2004 sexual assault.
The 1998 homicide investigation is still ongoing at this time.
