Results of DNA tests
NILES -- Authorities say DNA tests show that semen thrown on women at Eastwood Mall and surrounding stores is consistent with that of a Brookfield man.
City police said they got the results from the Ohio Bureau of Identification and Investigation on Wednesday.
Robert Leroy Gibson III, 38, faces several misdemeanor charges in Niles, Warren and Girard municipal courts. The results show that Gibson cannot be ruled out as the source of the semen.
He is accused of throwing or spraying the fluid on at least five women between August and November.
Gibson's case is set for a pretrial in Niles Municipal Court March 15.
Previous tests showed that the fluid did not contain any communicable diseases.
