LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO) - Lakewood Police Chief Timothy J. Malley says they have the man responsible for last month's rape.
At a news conference Thursday morning Chief Malley and Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty announced that they believe James Daniel III is responsible for the August 30 rape in Lakewood. He was connected to the crime through DNA.
On September 10, police released a composite sketch of the man they say raped and robbed a woman around 4:30 a.m. That sketch turned out to be Daniel. Officers say he was armed when he approached the victim on Warren Road and assaulted her before fleeing on foot.
