A DNA match helped crack a 26-year-old cold case in Maryland. Montgomery County Police have arrested Hubert Allan Marlin, 53, whose last known address was Michigan. He faces rape and assault charges.

On Oct. 13, 1984, an adult female was attacked and raped while walking home from work. Police conducted an extensive investigation and exhausted all the available leads, but the case remained unsolved until April of this year. That's when the case was reopened, and physical evidence from the crime was submitted for a forensic examination.

Police were able to obtain a DNA profile and upload it into a nationwide database.

Once the profile was uploaded, a match was obtained and a suspect was identified. Detectives then launched an intensive search to find Marlin and arrested him without incident Sunday morning in Bethesda.

Marlin is currently being held without bond at the Montgomery County Detention Center.
