Police traced the mobile phone, arresting two men who were in possession of it, but they were released after no evidence to their link to the incident was found.
Their accounts, coupled with the DNA results, taken from evidence in the victim's apartment, led to the apprehension of the suspect.
The victim's relatives told Ynet Monday that she was still struggling with the trauma.
