DENVER — A 26-year-old has been arrested in connection with a sex assault case from 2010, prosecutors said Thursday.

Joseph Baca faces a charge of sexual assault on a child, said Lynn Kimbrough of the Denver DA’s office.

The charges are in connection with a sex assault from April 2010. Kimbrough said the female victim was visiting downtown Denver when she was assaulted by someone she met.

Baca had not been identified as a suspect until a recent DNA match, she said.

He is being held on a $50,000 bond.
