Louisiana Man Arrested in 1995 Sexual Assault, Torture Case

A Louisiana man is awaiting extradition to Tyler, accused of the 1995 sexual assault and torture of a woman.

41-year-old Joseph Haywood, Jr. was arrested Friday in Greensburg, Louisiana.  The U.S. Marshal's office in Baton Rouge says Haywood's DNA was matched to the crime using new technology.

His bond has been set at $100,000.   The alleged assault happened in October 1995 near a Tyler nightclub. We're told the DNA match was made this September.
