HARRIS COUNTY SHERIFF'S DETECTIVES SEEK PUBLIC'S HELP IN IDENTIFYING
AND APPREHENDING SUSPECT IN MULTIPLE SEXUAL ASSAULTS
HOUSTON – At a news conference today, investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office asked the public’s assistance in providing information about an unidentified suspect in three sexual assaults in which DNA from the perpetrator has been matched to the same individual.
A composite drawing of the suspect is attached to this e-mail. Investigators ask that any victims who have not come forward before, or anyone with information about the suspect, contact Crimestoppers (713-222-TIPS, 713-222-8477) or Sheriff Adrian Garcia’s Adult Sex Crimes Unit (713-967-5743).
The suspect is described as a short, stocky black man in his 20s or 30s. He may drive a white Ford Expedition with a chrome bumper and also has been seen in a dark truck with a decorative grate on the rear window.
The crimes took place in the west/northwest part of the county. Hispanic women were the victims in the three reported assaults.
One was attacked while jogging alone on a track at Springs Woods High School in the early hours of Aug. 18, 2007. The two others were attacked while alone in laundry rooms of apartment complexes on Nov. 2, 2010 and Dec. 14, 2010.
The suspect used a folding box cutter as a weapon.
HCSO detectives are working on the case in cooperation with Spring Branch ISD police.
