FL - Suspected Serial Rapist Arrested Orange County, Florida
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- A suspected serial rapist is off the streets and behind bars right now.
Orange County deputies arrested 29-year-old Daniel Pearson for armed sexual battery, on Friday.
Deputies say they were able to arrest Pearson by using DNA samples.
Analysts were able to match samples taken from past victims to the most recent victim.
Deputies say the way Daniel Pearson would attack his victims was always the same.
They say he would strike up a conversation and then rape his victims with a gun in hand.
Orange County deputies arrested Pearson for an armed sexual battery case in 2005.
They say his victim lived at the Silver Pines Apartments.
Deputies say he knocked on the woman's door and talked to her at length, but when she asked him to leave, deputies say he raped her.
Pearson was also accused of two other armed sexual batteries in Orlando.
Investigators had difficult time obtaining information from the victim in one of the cases.

I'm glad they were finally able to prove what they knew all along...that he was the one. I see they think there are more victims out there.
DNA is a wonderful thing!
