LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A state prison inmate has been charged in connection to a Lancaster rape case from 2014.
The inmate, who has not been identified, is charged as a juvenile with numerous crimes, including felony rape and robbery.
According to authorities, the suspect was a week short of his 18th birthday when he attacked a woman in the 400 block of South Duke Street back on August 10, 2014.
Police said he punched the woman until she provided a passcode for her phone.
The suspect, now 20, is currently in state prison on a separate case and conviction.
Lancaster police filed charges after DNA evidence from the crime scene matched the man’s profile.
A hearing has not yet been scheduled. A petition to move the case to adult court is expected to be filed by the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office.
