California man charged in 2007 rape of Robbins girl

Dionysus West thought he was in the clear in the Christmas 2007 rape of a 12-year-old girl in south suburban Robbins, Cook County Sheriff’s officials say.
West, a relative of the boyfriend of the girl’s mother, was a suspect. But Robbins detectives failed to follow up on evidence they sent to the Illinois State Police. West moved to Oakland, California, where his father lived, and the case grew cold.
But late last month, the 41-year-old man was picked up in Oakland on an arrest warrant and ordered held without bail in the Cook County Jail on a charge of predatory sexual assault.
