Posted: Updated:
CHAMBLEE, Ga. - Police in Chamblee tell FOX 5 they have arrested a man who sexually assaulted an elderly woman.

Allen Lee Garner, 30, was arrested after he sexually assaulted the victim, 79, inside her Chamblee home.

"She was so afraid that this guy would come back that she slept under the bed," said Joe Wright, a neighbor.

FOX 5 aired a picture of Garner taken by a neighbor and within hours the suspect was locked up.

On Thursday morning tests results came back linking Garner's DNA to the DNA from the sexual assault, according to police.

Garner has been previously charged with burglary and theft.

He will face a DeKalb County judge on Friday afternoon.
