A teenager has been arrested in connection with the sexual assault of two Scottsdale women that occurred last month. Police have yet to release his name, but have confirmed the suspect is a 16-year-old male.

Two women were sexually assaulted at two separate apartment on October 18 and 24.

Police said they have forensic evidence linking the suspect to both crimes and that the two victims have positively identified him.

He was arrested near his home in Scottsdale, but not where either of the attacks took place.

One man had originally been linked to the crimes but was let go due to lack of DNA evidence on Thursday.

The investigation is still ongoing.
