DNA IDS CON AS MACY'S RAPIST
New York Post, June 30, 2002

A DNA match has identified the so-called Macy's rapist who sexually assaulted and bashed a sales clerk in the chain's flagship Manhattan store more than four years ago, The Post has learned.

The Manhattan district attorney's office is expected to file charges tomorrow against a man who is serving time for another crime in an upstate prison, law-enforcement sources said.

The suspect, whose name is being withheld pending the new criminal charges, was forced to give a DNA sample to the state Division of Criminal Justice Services upon his last conviction, sources said.

Under a state law passed in December 1999, a person found guilty of any crimes on a list of 87 violent or drug-related offenses must give a DNA sample to the state.

The suspect's DNA was checked against a DNA database containing samples gleaned from hair, skin, blood and saliva routinely collected at crime scenes.

It matched blood found at the scene of the Jan. 16, 1998, rape of a 49-year-old Macy's clerk.

The clerk, a mother of two, had stabbed the rapist in the face with her identification pin as she was raped in a seventh-floor storage area.

The alleged rapist - described at the time as a black male, 25 to 35 years old, of medium build with scars or birthmarks under his eyes - has been a suspect in numerous other sexual assaults, sources said. He could now face renewed questioning as part of those investigations.

Lawyer Madeline Bryer, who won an out-of-court settlement for the victim, called her client "a hero" for being able to stab her attacker and extract the DNA evidence that has finally helped cops track him down.

But she added the attack should never have happened in a premises supposedly monitored by security cameras.

The state's growing DNA database has helped cops close at least 32 previously unsolved crimes, according to a January 2002 report by the Criminal Justice Services' research department on the state's first 100 DNA matches since the law was introduced.

Police previously had no suspects in one third of the cases in which DNA matches were made between February 2000, when the first match was made, and July 2001, the report stated.

"We are just beginning to see what a remarkably valuable tool DNA is for solving previously unsolved crimes," said Chauncey Parker, commissioner of the state Division of Criminal Justice Services.
