Florida man arrested when DNA links him to 22-year-old rape
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been arrested after DNA evidence linked him to a 22-year-old rape case.
Lee County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Paul S. Jacobs on Tuesday. He’s charged with the sexual battery of a minor.
The News-Press reports the victim called the sheriff’s office on Dec. 9, 1995. She said that a man driving a red vehicle had offered to take her to get something to eat at a restaurant. Instead, he drove to a wooded area and raped her. He drove her to an apartment complex and let her go.
Undersheriff Carmine Marceno says Jacobs was identified as a result of a DNA match. He is being held without bond in jail. Records don’t list a lawyer for Jacobs.
