DNA Evidence Links Suspect to Rape

Troy Police say they've found the rapist they've been searching for since February.

Police arrested 21-year-old Earl Oscar McNeil III from Goshen on Tuesday.

McNeil is charged with rape 1st degree, robbery 1st degree and burglary 1st degree.

DNA linked McNeil to a rape that occurred in February this year in Troy at the Trojan Arms complex.

Police say an armed rapist entered one of the Trojan Arms Apartments in February.

He then raped and robbed a woman and fled on foot.

McNeil is currently in the Pike County Jail under $50,000 bond for two unrelated armed robberies in Troy that also occurred in February.

Another bond has been set at $50,000 each in the rape, robbery and burglary charges he was arrested for Tuesday.
