DNA match leads to arrest in sexual assault

Posted: Updated:

A 28-year-old man has been charged with sexual assault after DNA evidence linked him to a March attack.

The victim was riding her bike in the 1900 block of College Row when a 4-door pick-up truck drove up. Police say Michael Broughton exited the truck and forced the victim into the back seat. He then sexually assaulted her, while another suspect was in the driver's seat of the truck.

Broughton has been charged with aggravated kidnapping and sexual assault. Police say during an interview he confessed to the crime.

Police have identified and interview a person of interest who is believed to be the second suspect present during the crime. His involvement is still being investigated.
