Davenport Man Arrested for 2011 Assault in Delaware County

MANCHESTER, Iowa (AP) – Authorities say a Davenport man was arrested after his DNA matched samples collected after a 2011 sexual assault reported in rural eastern Iowa. Delaware County court records say 33-year-old Zachary Broders is charged with third-degree sexual abuse. Court documents say a woman reported in July 2011 that she was assaulted by a man who gave her a ride to rural Ryan. Authorities say rape kit DNA samples collected then matched a DNA sample from Broders, who had been arrested elsewhere.
