Police Release Composite of Kidnapping / Sexual
June 6, 2005 -- Investigators
in the Houston Police Juvenile Division have released a composite
sketch of a suspect wanted in the aggravated kidnapping and
sexual assault of a 12-year-old boy about 2:30 p.m. on Saturday
The victim said the suspect was a Hispanic male
in his late 20s or early 30s, somewhere between 5 feet 2 and 5
feet 10 inches tall with a chubby build. The suspect drove a brown
and white van.
HPD Juvenile Division Sergeant L.R. Ousley and
Officer J.T. Roscoe of the Sex Crimes Unit reported:
The boy and his eight-year-old cousin were leaving
a Dollar General Store in the 8300 block of Bellfort when they
met the suspect in the parking lot. The suspect told the boys
he could not speak English and needed someone to order food for
him at the McDonald's restaurant across the street at 8320 Broadway.
The children, both bilingual, agreed to go with the suspect and
got into his brown and white van. The suspect gave the younger
boy money and sent him into the restaurant to order the food.
He then drove away with the 12-year-old in his vehicle. The suspect
drove to a secluded area, had the victim disrobe, and then forcibly
sexually assaulted him. After the assault, the suspect dropped
off the victim at a Subway restaurant on Monroe at the Gulf Freeway.
The victim then walked home, getting help from strangers as to
how to get there. The younger boy, after discovering the van and
his cousin missing from the parking lot, walked home and told
his parents what had happened. The parents called police.
Anyone with information on the suspect in this
case is urged to contact the HPD Juvenile Division at 713-731-5335
or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

the arrest and indictment of the suspect in this case.
