Police: DNA helps link Md. man to sex assaults

CHILLUM — Prince George’s County police say DNA evidence helped link a Silver Spring man arrested after an attempted robbery to two sexual assaults earlier that day.

Police announced Monday that they are charging 33-year-old Emerito Chicas-Savala in two sex assaults and robberies at gunpoint in Chillum on Oct. 29. Hours later, Montgomery County police arrested Chicas-Savala after two women reported an attempted robbery at a Colesville bus stop.

Prince George’s County Police say a DNA match and a composite sketch helped detectives connect the cases in Chillum to Chicas-Savala and he faces multiple counts of first- and second- degree rape, armed robbery and other charges. He is being held in Montgomery County on an unrelated robbery charge, but police say he is connected to a sex assault there earlier this year.
