CMPD Charges Suspect In 1995 Cold Case Involving Rape And Armed Robbery

CHARLOTTE, NC — Police have charged a 43-year-old man in connection to the rape and armed robbery of a young woman during the summer of 1995.

Nathaney Davis was arrested Wednesday and charged with First Degree Rape, First Degree Sex Offense, First Degree Kidnapping and Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon.

Investigators say the crime happened on June 5, 1995 along Nations Ford Road. The 23-year-old victim was reportedly walking when two armed male suspects approached her and demanded money and jewelry.
