DNA evidence has led to a 23-year-old man being named as a suspect in a series of sexual assaults, according to San Antonio police.
Corey Gabriel was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Bexar County Jail with bonds totaling $800,000.
An arrest warrant affidavit stated that police had been investigating the two sexual assault cases since October 2012.
Two women told detectives they were attacked on two separate days that month by a man with a gun who approached them as they sat in their cars early in the morning.
In one case, the 32-year-old alleged victim said she was waiting for her gym, in the 4900 block of Golden Quail, to open when the gunman approached her, the affidavit stated.
The location of the other attack, which involved a 22-year-old woman, was not disclosed.
Both women said they were forced to perform sex acts on the man, the affidavit stated. Police collected DNA samples after the attacks, the affidavit stated.
They said they got their break in the case after a burglary in August of this year that had some similarities to the sexual assault cases.
Gabriel was arrested in connection with that crime, and detectives obtained DNA samples from him following his arrest, the affidavit stated.
In September, they learned the samples from Gabriel were a match with those taken after the attacks, the affidavit stated.
Gabriel was charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault. He also faces a burglary charge from the August arrest, records show.
A press release issued by San Antonio police over the weekend stated Gabriel was initially tracked down by Deputies with the U.S. Marshals in the Houston area.
