ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police in Montgomery County say they’ve used DNA to arrest a suspect in a rape case from 2007.

Darren Lee Marshall of Upper Marlboro was arrested Monday on a warrant charging him with rape, assault and sex offense.

Police say the sexual assault occurred Dec. 22, 2007, when a member of the housekeeping staff at a Holiday Inn in Gaithersburg reported being raped by a man who fled the scene.

Police used they used DNA recovered from the scene to develop a DNA profile, which was uploaded into a national database and matched to Marshall.

A bond review hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear if Marshall, 28, has a lawyer.
