PITTSBURGH

A New York City man has been arrested on allegations that he raped a Pittsburgh woman more than 20 years ago.

Authorities say 61-year-old Arthur Fryar was arrested Thursday in Brooklyn.

Police say a man forced his way inside the apartment of a 32-year-old Pittsburgh woman in November 1992 and raped her. In April, a friend of the woman’s family contacted Pittsburgh police and asked them to re-open the case.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office processed the 1992 rape kit and found DNA that didn’t belong to the woman, according to a criminal complaint.

Police say the DNA matched a sample from Fryar, which was in a national crime database.
