Tampa, FL-- Tampa Police officers have located and arrested the man suspected of sexually battering an elderly woman at a local church

According to reports, it was 11:45 a.m. on Friday October 19 when the woman was at the Living Word Fellowship getting a key to a rental home nearby. As she was walking to the rental house, the man, now identified as 26-year-old Demetreius Martees Morris, approached her and started asking her questions about the church.

When Morris asked to see the sanctuary, she unlocked the door and let him inside the building, and that's when they say he put his hand over her mouth, pushed her down onto a chair and sexually battered her. 

Though he fled the scene, a Tampa Police crime scene technician took swabs from the victim, submitted them for testing and received notification from FDLE that the profile matched Morris' DNA.  

Reports say he was arrested without incident, and charged with Sexual Battery, kidnapping, lewd and lascivious battery on an elderly person, lewd and lascivious molestation of an elderly person.
