ROBBINS, Ill. (WLS) -- A 57-year-old man has been charged in a sexual assault at a Robbins assisted living facility two years ago, the Cook County Sheriff's Office said Sunday.

The sexual assault occurred at an assisted living facility in the 13800-block of Utica Avenue on June 13, 2015, the sheriff's office said. The 58-year-old victim told police that another resident at the facility held her down and sexually assaulted her. After the assault, the victim ran out of the room and notified the staff.

In November 2016, the sheriff's office reopened the investigation. DNA results received this year tied the suspect, Charles Bryant, to the victim, the sheriff's office said.

Bryant was arrested Saturday in Hazel Crest, where he now lives. He has been charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual assault and one count of criminal sexual assault.

Bryant is scheduled to appear in bond court Sunday.
