Police Located Rape Suspect After He's Caught Jaywalking

DENVER (CBS4) - A jaywalking stop may be the key to closing an old rape case.

Gregory Carter, 46, is now charged with two counts of sexual assault. DNA evidence linked him to a 2012 case when a woman was raped in a Denver alley.

While Carter has been a suspect for a while, police didn't find him until last week when he was stopped for jaywalking. He was then arrested on the outstanding warrant.

Carter is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday for his second advisement of the charges.
