Earlier: Arlington Police have named a suspect in a sexual assault case from September.
The incident occurred on Sept. 26 on the 2500 block of 20th Road North.
Police say Berton, 36, walked into an apartment through an unlocked front door and found a woman sleeping. He sexually assaulted the woman, stole items from the apartment and then fled the area, according to police.
Investigators have used DNA evidence to link Berton with a similar crime that occurred in 2008.
Police say a woman was sleeping when Berton entered her Colonial Village apartment on the morning of Sept. 10, 2008. According to investigators, Berton threatened the woman with a knife and then exposed himself to her. He left without taking anything or hurting the victim, police said.
A police press release at the time included a composite sketch that resembles a photo of Berton provided by police this afternoon.
