KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

DNA technology has linked a 52-year-old Kansas City man with the 2009 sexual assault of a teenaged girl abducted from a bus stop, prosecutors say.

Keith E. Walker has been charged Wednesday with one count of forcible rape, five counts of forcible sodomy and one count of second-degree child molestation.

According to court records, the 15-year-old was waiting for a bus in December 2009 near East 35th Street and Prospect Avenue when she was forced by Walker to get into his truck.

The victim said he threatened her with a handgun and raped and sodomized her until she escaped near East 59th and Swope Parkway where she ran into a home.

Evidence collected from the victim and tested for DNA, according the Kansas City Crime Laboratory, linked Walker to the crime.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $500,000.
