Detectives have shed new light on a cold case rape investigation.

Authorities say DNA evidence linked 45 year old Colin Barton to the crime.

The alleged incident happened back in 1996, when he's accused of forcing a woman, walking on Baton Rouge Avenue, to have sex with him.

Results from the State Crime lab came in and Barton was arrested Thursday.
