ORLANDO, Fla. - A 24-year-old man was arrested Tuesday in Orange County on suspicion of breaking into an Orange County home in 2012, raping a college-aged woman and stealing several items.

Edgar Collazo was arrested on one count of armed sexual battery, two counts of kidnapping and one count of occupied burglary with a deadly weapon.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, Collazo broke into a home at the Auvers Apartments in Orlando on June 1, 2012.  Deputies said Collazo was wearing a mask and tied up one woman before raping the other.  He then fled after taking several items, deputies said.

Collazo was arrested in May 2014 in an attempted sexual battery case, and DNA taken from the 2012 incident was linked to the more recent attack, deputies said.

Collazo was interviewed by authorities on Tuesday and arrested in the 2012 case.

Deputies said Collazo lived at the Auvers Apartments when the 2012 attack occurred.
