Marino Antonio Hernandez was charged last month wilth molesting a child in San Mateo and another in Redwood City. San Jose police spokesman Joseph Deras says they have DNA evidence that links Hernandez to the sexual assault of a seven year old girl at knifepoint in San Jose last year.

He´s scheduled to be back in court on Friday. In the meantime, he´s being held in the San Mateo County jail.
