Kenosha Man's DNA Matches Cold Case Rape; Currently Being Tried on Trying to Force Women in Car
A Kenosha man charged with trying to force a woman and teenager into his car in October is now facing a new charge.
The District Attorney tells us Leroy Johnson matched a description of a suspect from a cold case.
Johnson's DNA matched a rape from a case three years ago.
Johnson already faces charges from two separate incidents from October when police say he tried to kidnap a 52-year old woman and a 14-year old girl.
One of the District Attorney's staff members thought the case sounded similar to one back in 2013.
They took the 61-year old suspect's DNA and interviewed the 2013 victim that's how they were able to bring the charge.
The deputy district attorney says the suspect had a pattern of driving up and asking for directions.
They said he then points a gun and tells women to get in the car.
The two women from this year got away.
The deputy DA said getting a charge on a cold case is a win.
“Public protection is the priority when you find a case where the allegations stretch out like this over a period of time with three separate victims now saying this stuff happened to them," Mike Graveley, Kenosha Deputy District Attorney said.
The trial is set for March 28.
