DNA Evidence Collected from 2011 Rape Leads to Arrest of San Bernardino Man

DNA Evidence Collected from 2011 Rape Leads to Arrest of San Bernardino Man

HIGHLAND – DNA evidence led deputies to a suspect identity and arrest over 6 years after a rape. The female victim returned to her Highland home with a friend, Antoine Osborne and his girlfriend on January 22, 2011, at around 2:00 a.m.

During the night, the female victim woke up to find that Osborne was raping her. She called 911 and Osborne fled the scene. The victim was transported to the hospital where she had a sexual assault exam. The evidence collected from the exam was sent over to the Crime Lab, where DNA evidence was found. Unfortunately, at that time, the DNA profile had no match to any other collected DNA profiles.

The DNA remained in the data bank and on April 5, 2017, there was a profile match. The DNA collected from the 2011 rape, matched the DNA of 29-year-old Antoine Osborne of San Bernardino. Osborne was located in the City of San Bernardino and was detained. He was interviewed and subsequently arrested and booked into the Central Detention Center for rape. He is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail and is scheduled to appear at the San Bernardino Superior Court on Friday afternoon.

Anyone with additional information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Highland Police Station at (909)425-9793.
