Rocklin police announced Thursday that a DNA match had led to an arrest in an alleged sexual assault that occurred nearly two years ago.

A news release provided these details:

On Jan. 1, 2008, officers responded in the early morning hours to a report of a sexual assault in the 5400 block of Quane Road.

The alleged victim, 27, was a man who had come to a party there on New Years Eve and decided to spend the night. He said he was fast asleep, when a man woke him up while sexually assaulting him.

The suspect had also been at the party and lived in the neighborhood, police said.

Detectives obtained DNA samples from both men, but the samples weren't processed until earlier this month.

A match led to the arrest of Ladd Douglass Wildenen (top left photo), 41, for suspicion of sexual assault and oral copulation, both felonies.

He was booked into the Placer County Jail, with bail set at $150,000.
