CLEVELAND- A convicted sex offender is sitting in the Cleveland city jail suspected of a new attack on a woman waiting for a bus.

Eddie Brisbon, 41, was picked up on a warrant and is now charged with rape.

A police report shows the attack happened early one morning back in June. A woman told police she was robbed and raped in an attack that began near East 79th Street and Euclid Avenue, a bus stop for RTA’s HealthLine bus.

Court records show the suspect had a gun and took the woman’s purse. When he found nothing of value, he forced the woman to go to several warehouses and perform sex acts. The victim said the man had a broken beer bottle and threatened to kill her.

Cleveland Sex Crimes investigators had little to go on, but they used DNA to tie Brisbon to the case. We’ve learned detectives and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office worked together to get the testing done quickly.

Cuyahoga County records show Brisbon was convicted in Georgia in 2008 for sexually assaulting a 15 year old girl. Lately, he’s been living in Cleveland.
