    On Wednesday, August 23, 2000, at approximately 2150 hours, an 18-year old, white male was walking to a bus stop when he was accosted at gun-point by an unidentified white male. The offender forced the victim to the offender’s pick-up truck that was parked nearby. At the truck, the victim was gagged and his hands were bound behind his back. The offender drove the victim to unknown locations and sexually assaulted the victim. As the offender was leaving, he told the victim not to get up until he left and not to report this incident to the police. During the victim’s physical examination, the offender’s DNA was recovered. The DNA has been profiled and is maintained in the National Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).
