An Ohio man has finally been charged in connection with a rape reported in Rockland Township in the summer of 2012.

41 year-old Mark Dick, from Canton, was arrested based on the testing of DNA evidence that was collected this past winter, and is charged with raping a woman at a home he was visiting in Rockland in July, 2012.  Investigators say Dick had immediately fled the scene without any explanation to his hosts as to why he was leaving.

Police say they finally had solid evidence against Dick by March, and he was charged last week.

Charges against Dick include rape, sexual assault, and two different counts of aggravated assault.  He was lodged in the Venango County Jail with bail set at $75,000.
