SEATTLE — A 25-year-old Oklahoma man charged in a Seattle-area rape and assault in March has been arrested in his home state.
KOMO-TV reported that a DNA profile led to charges of first-degree rape and first-degree assault against Christopher Anthony Brown. A King County sheriff’s official said he was arrested Tuesday in Oklahoma and is expected to be extradited back to Washington.
Brown is accused of beating and raping a 58-year-old Auburn woman who was walking to a bus stop in the White Center neighborhood.
Police say the woman suffered multiple fractures in her face and jaw.
Law enforcement officers say they believe Brown was living in Seattle from late January to mid-March.
