A 25-year-old man suspected in multiple sexual assaults and robberies, including one last week, has been arrested, police said.

Police arrested Bernard Burton, of the 2000 block of E. Baltimore St., Feb. 12 on an open warrant in a sexual assault in the 100 block of N. Rose St., from July of 2012, police said.

A police spokesman did not know how long the warrant had been open. A DNA test linked Burton to a more recent sexual assault and robbery in the 2800 block of E. Fairmount Ave., on Monday of last week, police said.

Burton also faces 13 charges of robbery and sexual assault in another case in June of 2012, according to online Maryland court records.

Burton has not been linked to any other cases, police said, but investigations are ongoing.

No attorney was listed for Burton in online court records.
