The police arrested a man who seven years ago allegedly robbed a Taiwanese tourist, a police spokeswoman said on Friday. The robbery took place in Prague in 2003; the alleged robber, who was 18 at the time, attacked a 62-year-old Taiwanese national and stole his camera, severely injuring the foreigner who died in hospital four days later. The man was caught because of his DNA profile; after he was later arrested for other crimes, the investigators matched his DNA profile to the samples they collected at the scene of the robbery. The police spokeswoman said the man, who he had confessed to the crime, faced up to 15 years in jail.
