CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Less than 24 hours after DNA evidence linked a man to a brutal assault on North Beach, police have made an arrest.

San Antonio Police have arrested David Vasquez Junior, 26.  DNA evidence collected by Corpus Christi Police has linked Vasquez to the crime which happened in November 2011.

Police say Vasquez is the man who brutally assaulted a 30-year old Fajitaville waitress as she was walking to her car following her shift.  He was armed with a knife and suspected of grabbing her from behind, beating her then taking off in her car.

Vasquez has been charged with aggravated robbery.  No word yet on when he'll be extradited to Corpus Christi.
