"koreatown rapist" matches dna collected from victims

I remember this case from a few years back, the "Koreatown Rapist"... Last week, a Los Angeles Police Department criminalist testified that the genetic code of Tyreese Reed, a man accused of attacking and raping seven women in Beverly Hills, Glendale and Koreatown, matched DNA collected from two women: DNA linked to accused rapist.

According to authorities, a saliva swab sample collected from the inside of Reed's mouth matched hair, mouth and lip specimens taken from several alleged victims that the Police Department tested.

Reed was arrested July 2005 and charged with 18 felony counts, which include three counts of forcible rape, three counts of forcible oral copulation, three counts of attempted oral copulation, five counts of second-degree robbery, two counts of burglary, one count of sodomy by use of force and one count of kidnapping.

He is charged with attacking seven Asian women aged 17 to 55 between August 26, 2004, and June 15, 2005, but Los Angeles police believe he is actually responsible for 13 sexual assaults and robberies.

According to the district attorney's office, if he's convicted, Reed faces a maximum of 150 years in state prison. Indeed, this guy needs to rot in a locked cage for a very, very long time. Rot, you sicko! Here's the news story from a few years back on Reed's arrest: Man Posing as Parole Officer Held in Series of Koreatown Rapes.
