Suspect Arrested in Sexual Assaults of Juveniles

November 17, 2005 -- Investigators in the Houston Police Juvenile Division believe a suspect arrested for sexual assaults on two juveniles might have committed other similar crimes.

The suspect, identified as Johnny Lee Wright (b/m, DOB 10-16-79), was arrested Wednesday (Nov. 16) at his home at 7819 Corinth. He has been charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of sexual assault of a child in the 337th State District Court. He also faces a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Investigators are asking any other individuals victimized by Wright to contact them at 713-731-5335.

Officer H.A. Whillock of the HPD Juvenile Division Sex Crimes Unit reported:

Wright worked as a contract janitor at Attucks Middle School. Two female students at the school, one 13 years old and the other 14 years of age, told investigators they met Wright at the school in October and were lured to his residence on separate occasions where the sexual assaults took place.

It is believed the suspect committed other assaults against juvenile females who have not come forward to report the incidents. Investigators urge those victims to report the incidents to the Juvenile Sex Crimes Unit.
