Travis Jonathan Smith, 33, was identified as the suspect from DNA evidence, police said.
Smith is accused of offering a woman a ride June 7, 2013, in the area of the 5200 block of Monitor Drive. The woman refused, but "the suspect was persistent with his offer and the adult female eventually agreed to take a ride with the suspect," police said in the original news release.
Smith allegedly drove the woman somewhere else and raped her.
He was arrested on suspicion of rape by force, kidnapping, kidnap to commit rape and false imprisonment.
