GLENPOOL, Okla. (AP) – Police say a person of interest is in custody in the rape of a 12-year-old Glenpool girl last year, and authorities believe he is the same man who tried to kidnap two young girls from their lemonade stand in March.

Police tell Tulsa television station KOTV that court records indicated that police got a DNA hit from both the rape of the Glenpool girl and the attempted kidnapping of the two girls, and tied them to a suspect – who Tulsa and Glenpool police officials declined to identify during a news conference Tuesday.

Officials say the person of interest is in custody on unrelated charges, but said they expect formal charges to be brought soon in the assault case.
