DENVER - A man accused in a brutal stranger attack on a woman pleaded guilty Friday.
Manuel McGee, 32, was charged with first-degree assault and attempted sexual assault for the 2008 attack.
The 32-year-old victim was walking home alone in the early morning hours of July 8, 2008 when she was attacked in the area near 14th Avenue and Decatur Street.
Investigators say she was sexually assaulted and nearly choked to death, but survived and was able to reach her home following the attack.
The case was unsolved until Denver police detectives were alerted to a DNA match after McGee was arrested in Lakewood in 2011 for aggravated motor vehicle theft.
McGee faces 25 years in prison.
