TULSA — Police in Tulsa say DNA tests have linked a man accused of trying to lure two girls into his car from their lemonade stand to an unsolved rape of a 12-year girl in Glenpool.

Police tell a local television station that investigators were able to collect a DNA sample from the man’s lemonade cup, which the girls saved. The DNA profile matched a case from January 2013, when a man kidnapped and raped a 12-year-old girl in Glenpool.

Authorities have made no arrests in that case but were able to collect a DNA sample.

Tulsa police Sgt. John Adams says the suspect is a white man in his 40s with curly hair and glasses. Adams says he may be driving a gold Nissan Maxima or a white Jeep Cherokee.
