(CNN)Authorities believe a Florida man arrested last weekend is the so-called Pillowcase Rapist and is responsible for a string of notorious South Florida assaults that took place in the 1980s, the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office announced Thursday.

Robert Eugene Koehler was arrested in Palm Bay, Florida, after new DNA analysis allegedly tied him to a rape in Miami in December 1983, Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court documents show.

But that DNA also matched samples from a number of cases between 1981 to 1986 left by a suspect who became known as the Pillowcase Rapist, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a news conference.

8. Yeah, but this was more old school, not a complex genealogical DNA thing like

some of the recent ones, including the Golden State Killer.

9. That's how they caught Matthias Reyes,

the man who raped, sodomized and broke almost every bone in the the body of The Central Park Jogger. DNA. He left it everywhere.
