BOSTON (AP) — A 52-year-old Washington, D.C.-area man is charged in an alleged 2004 indecent assault on a then-23-year-old woman on a Boston subway.

Timothy Day of Bethesda, Md., pleaded not guilty to indecent assault and battery Monday in Suffolk Superior Court. Bail was set at $1,500. Authorities say DNA evidence linked him to the case.
