Police arrested a prison inmate from Winston-Salem on Tuesday after investigators linked him to a sexual assault that happened nearly 26 years ago, authorities said Wednesday.
John Henry Alford, 71, was charged with first-degree rape, first-degree sexual offense and first-degree kidnapping, Winston-Salem police said. When Alford was arrested, he was being held in a state prison on unrelated convictions for other crimes.
On Nov. 3., 1993, officers went to a home on Cayuga Street on a report of a rape, police said. The victim told officers that an unknown man armed with a knife approached her as she walked on Cayuga Street about 8:30 p.m. in the city’s northeastern section.
