ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Atlanta Police said they have made an arrest in a sexual assault case, and said the suspect preyed on the same victim twice by first raping her then returning to burglarize her home.

Demetrius Abercrombie, 42, was arrested Tuesday and charged with rape, sodomy, kidnapping, false imprisonment, and burglary. Police said Abercrombie has an extensive criminal record with prior rapes in 2005 and burglary in 2012.

Police said Abercrombie entered a unit in the Colonial Square apartments off Old Hapeville Road and Cleveland Avenue SW, just east of Interstate 75 through an unlocked door. It happened a little after 4 p.m. on May 31.

The victim was able to give police enough details to create a sketch of the man. She also told police the man had a distinct smell," and he told her he just got out of prison.:rolleyes:
