A married man has appeared in court charged with the 1996 rape of a teenage girl in Leeds.
Christopher Ian Brown, 44, was arrested in his home town of Northampton by officers from West Yorkshire and Northamptonshire on Monday.
He appeared at Leeds Magistrates' Court charged with the rape of a 17-year-old girl in the Dibb Lane area of Leeds in February 1996.
Mr Brown was released on bail to appear at the city's crown court next week.
He was arrested after the crime was reinvestigated by a cold case team which reviews cases in the light of advances in forensic science.
