    Tommie J. Naylor, of the 7900 block of South Yale Avenue, has been charged with multiple sexual assaults.

    A "DNA hit" has linked a U.S. postal worker, already being held without bond for alleged sexual assaults, with a fifth rape. The latest victim was a 16-year-old girl.

    Tommie J. Naylor, 41, of the 7900 block of South Yale Avenue, was charged with two counts of criminal sexual assault and one count of kidnapping, according to a release from police News Affairs.

    In the Nov. 1, 2008 incident, Naylor allegedly forced the victim into a vehicle at gunpoint with the help of two other people and then sexually assaulted the teen.

    Naylor had been removed from Cook County Jail -- where he was being held without bond for three previous criminal sexual assaults -- and brought to Wentworth Area detectives for questioning due to a "DNA hit" from the 2008 incident, according to News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.

    Naylor was positively identified by the victim and charged, his fifth separate sexual assault case to date.

    Police said they're still looking for the other two people who helped Naylor in this latest incident.

    Naylor has also been charged with assaulting a 14-year-old girl in 2003; with raping a girl who came to him for help after she'd been raped by another man on Independence Day of 2005; with attacking a 16-year-old girl who had been standing at a CTA bus stop in the 7500 block of South Lafayette Avenue in 2006; and with assaulting a 15-year-old girl who was walking home from a friend's house in 2008.
