SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) - An ex-convict has been charged with rape in Oakland County after investigators tested evidence from 2008 that was left in a police warehouse.

The attorney general’s office says it’s one of more than 11,000 sexual assault kits that were left in a Detroit police warehouse until 2009.

Alan Broadnax of Detroit appeared in a Southfield court Thursday on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Bond was set at $100,000. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer who could be reached for comment.

A woman who was 18 at the time said she was sexually assaulted in Southfield. She reported it to police in Hamtramck, but evidence ended up in a Detroit police building with thousands of other kits.

Authorities say testing on all has been completed.
