Bolen and a friend, Michael Broughton, are accused of pulling the victim off her bicycle near Chicon Street and College Row in East Austin around 12:45 a.m.  Broughton then allegedly assaulted her in the back seat.

He was already in jail on another charge when DNA evidence linked him to this assault, according to the Austin American Statesman.

Broughton later implicated Bolen in the crime.
