A 49-year-old Covington man has been arrested in the 1999 rape of a Baton Rouge woman.

Police say Zebedee Pittman allegedly raped a woman on June 25, 1999 after forcing his way into her home.

Investigators say DNA evidence collected during a sexual assault examination was linked to Pittman last year and led police to his arrest.

Pittman was booked Wednesday one count each of aggravated rape and aggravated oral sexual battery.
