SAITAMA (TR) – Saitama Prefectural Police have arrested a 32-year-old man for the alleged sexual assault of a female university in her residence in Saitama City five years ago, reports TV Asahi (Oct. 13).

In November of 2011, Satoru Naraoka, a truck driver, is alleged to have trespassed into the apartment of the girl and raped her.

Naraoka, who has been charged with assault and rape, partially denies the charges. “I entered her apartment and fondled her body but I did not assault or rape her,” the suspect is quoted by police.

Police arrested Naraoka after the results of a DNA analysis of evidence left at the crime scene proved to be a match for the suspect.
