    A Florida man has been arrested after DNA evidence linked him to a 22-year-old rape case.

    Lee County Sheriff's deputies arrested Paul S. Jacob on Tuesday. He's charged with the sexual battery of a minor.

    The News-Press reports the victim called the sheriff's office on Dec. 9, 1995. She said that a man driving a red vehicle had offered to take her to get something to eat at a restaurant. Instead, he drove to a wooded area and raped her. He drove her to an apartment complex and let her go.

    Undersheriff Carmine Marceno says Jacob was identified as a result of a DNA match. He is being held without bond in jail. Records don't list a lawyer for Jacob.
