CHAMPAIGN -- A man arrested this summer faces new charges. 20-year old Aaron Kirby is now charged with kidnapping and sexual assault.

A victim told police Kirby offered to drive him home from a party, but instead drove them to a park. Kirby reportedly then pulled out a gun and forced the victim to perform sexual acts.

Kirby was already in jail in connection to a shooting. He had to turn over DNA for the state database. It was determined to be a match to the unsolved sexual assault.
