Md. man arrested in old Boston subway assault case

Monday - 5/21/2012, 7:56pm  ET

BOSTON (AP) - A 52-year-old Washington, D.C.-area man is charged in an alleged 2004 indecent assault on a then-23-year-old woman on a Boston subway.

Timothy Day of Bethesda, Md., pleaded not guilty to indecent assault and battery Monday in Suffolk Superior Court. Bail was set at $1,500. Authorities say DNA evidence linked him to the case.

Boston prosecutors say the woman reported to police she found bodily fluids on her purse and slacks after a man pressed against her from behind on a train.

Prosecutors said the DNA from Boston matched a similar 2002 case on the Metro transit system in Virginia. The DNA link to Day was discovered last year. He was arrested May 15.

The Boston Globe reports ( http://bo.st/KsAHv4) Virginia authorities say the time limit to prosecute their case has expired.
