Suspect sought after DNA links man to the 1999 rape of a teenage girl

CAPITOL HEIGHTS, Md. – Police are searching for a 44-year-old man after a DNA test linked him to the 1999 rape of a teenage girl.

Prince George’s County police identified the man as Richard Cedric Taylor in a press release on Thursday.

The case involves a then-15-year-old girl said she was talking with friends, when a man she did not know offered her a ride home. She said that she got into the car and the man took her to an empty Capitol Heights apartment, where she was beaten and raped.

The case went unsolved for years until a DNA hit in September linked Taylor to the crime.

Taylor is now wanted on charges of second-degree rape and first – and second-degree assault. His last known address was in Temple Hills.
