Edward L. Newman, 25, has been charged with first-degree attempted sexual assault, kidnapping and third-degree assault in connection with a Oct. 19, 2006, attack on a woman who was leaving work. Police collected evidence, but with no suspect in sight the case was eventually suspended. Then on June 30, the Combined DNA Identification System got a hit on Newman's DNA, police said.
