Deputies have arrested a man suspected in a rape from 2012, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department announced Wednesday.
Demarea Brown, 21, allegedly assaulted a 19-year-old woman walking around a school along Firestone Drive, off of Calvine Road, back on Nov. 25.
The woman was said to have talked to Brown just before the assault. Two minutes after they parted ways, Brown allegedly confronted her again and grabbed her. He then sexually assaulted her and eventually ran off.
Brown has been positively identified as the attacker by the woman. A search of Brown’s home turned up evidence linking him to the assault, sheriff’s say.
Brown now faces felony charges of rape, oral copulation, kidnapping and robbery.
