PG County man arrested in decades-old rape case after DNA match, police say

Detectives have used DNA evidence to arrest a suspect in a rape from 23 years ago. 

At 1:55 a.m. on July 26, 2000, two people walking on Montgomery Village Avenue were stopped by a man with a handgun. The suspect allegedly robbed them and raped one of the victims, police say. 

A DNA profile was extracted from evidence from the crime scene, which was matched to 47-year-old James Lorenzo Greene. 

Green was arrested on September 6 and charged with first-degree rape, armed robbery, and first-degree assault.
