Dominic Booker, 27, was arrested on rape and burglary charges for the attack on a 31-year-old woman.

Cleveland police said Booker broke into a house on East 142nd Street and sexually assaulted a woman on Sept. 14.

DNA evidence also linked him to another sexually assault from 2018.

Cleveland police said Booker has not been charged in the Sept. 3 assault on a 7-year-old girl or two other burglaries in the neighborhood. In the first case, a man pushed in the air conditioner at a house on Caine Avenue and tried to assault the girl, who screamed for help. Her mother said she ran to her daughter's room as the man climbed out the window.

Earlier this week, a woman living in the same area pulled back a curtain and saw a masked man staring in the window. A man also told police he saw someone matching the description trying to pull out his air conditioner and get into his home.
