HPD Juvenile Division Sergeant R. Upton, Officers
E. Rodriguez and M. Loera of the Sex Crimes Unit reported:
The girl and her mother were walking in the parking
lot of a grocery store at 11006 Airline. They stated the suspect
had parked his white Chevrolet Astro van next to their car and
got out of the van armed with a gun. The suspect threatened to
shoot the girl unless she got into the van. The girl complied.
She said the suspect took her to a wooded area and sexually assaulted
her inside the van. The suspect then dropped off the girl at the
corner of Dyna and Airline.
The girl told investigators it looked like the
suspect lived inside the van. There was a mattress, white laundry
basket and a lot of clothes inside the van. The victim saw business
cards in the vehicle with a specific company's logo on them.
Working throughout the weekend, investigators
were able to locate the van parked in the 10000 block of Bauman
on Saturday (May 21). The vehicle is being processed for evidence.

Robert Ellison is urged to contact the HPD Juvenile Division at
