Update on Houston Men Against Family Violence Warrant
August 25, 2005 -- Day 2 of
the warrant sweep initiative that began on the morning of August
23rd to locate and arrest more than 300 suspects wanted for child
abuse, family violence, and failure to register as a sex offender
resulted in the apprehension of an additional 22 suspects. To
date, a total of 121 suspects have been arrested and 192 warrants
have been served.
The multi-agency initiative, part of the Houston
Men Against Family Violence Campaign, will continue until an attempt
is made to serve each and every outstanding warrant.
The most recent arrests include that of a 39-year-old
male suspect, Chevelle Dockery, (b/m, 12-14-65). Dockery forced
entry into the victim's house, assaulted her by beating her with
his hands, and then threatened to burn down her house. Also, an
arrest was made of a suspect, Lakesha Anderson (b/f, 8-26-76),
who had repeatedly threatened the victim with serious physical
injury. Anderson, the sister of the victim's former boyfriend,
made the threats after the complainant filed reports detailing
repeated physical abuse on the part of the male.
