Man arrested in 1990 rape of mother in Fayetteville park

December 29, 2018

Authorities on Friday said they have arrested a man accused of raping a woman in a Fayetteville park more than two decades ago.

Authorities said a woman was at Mazarick Park with her 1-year-old child on Nov. 20, 1990 when a man forced her to the back of the park and raped her before stealing her car.

In November 2017, authorities discovered that DNA from the crime scene had been linked to Wilbur D. McGill, 54, of the 300 block of Torbay Drive in Orange County, Fla.

McGill was arrested Friday and charged with first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny of a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.

McGill was being held in a Florida jail, pending extradition to Cumberland County.
