HPD Releases Composite of Sexual Assault Suspect

October 31, 2005 -- On Monday, October 31, 2005, investigators with the Houston Police Department Juvenile Sex Crimes Unit released a composite sketch of a sexual assault from an incident that occurred on Wednesday, October 19, 2005.

According to Houston Police Department Sex Crimes Investigator H.J. Ruiz, the victim, a 16-year-old black female high school student, was walking home at around 5:30 p.m. when a two-door black car drove up next to her. The suspect, described as being a light complected black male, between 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall with wavy or curly hair, jumped out of the car and grabbed her arm before picking her up and tossing her in the car. The suspect locked the doors and drove to an abandoned parking lot believed to be in the Almeda area and sexually assaulted her.

After the assault, the suspect took the 16-year-old to a near-by-convenient store and drove away. The victim called her mother who picked her up and later drove her to LBJ Hospital. The victim told investigators she did not know the suspect and provided information that lead to the completion of a composite sketch.

Anyone with information on this suspect or this incident is asked to contact the Houston Police Department Sex Crimes Unit at 713-731-5335 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
