DETROIT (AP) -- A lawyer for a 31-year-old man arrested in a string of rapes that terrorized Detroit says investigators have told him they have DNA evidence linking his client to the attacks.

Defense lawyer James Galen Jr. says he expects charges Monday. He says he also was told his client was picked out of a lineup, but he wasn't sure who identified him.

Galen says his client told investigators he wasn't involved in the assaults.

Detroit police declined to comment Sunday on the case. A news conference with police and prosecutors was scheduled for Monday, but it was unclear whether that would happen after a shooting Sunday that wounded four officers.

Police said the string of attacks includes seven sexual assaults and one attempted rape.
