Suspect Arrested and Charged in Several Sexual Assaults

May 16, 2006 -- Multiple charges have been filed against a suspect believed responsible for committing at least six sexual assaults against women in the past month in the southwest and west areas of the city.

The suspect, identified as Ronald Walker (b/m, DOB 9-7-80), is charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault and one count of sexual assault in the 180th State District Court. He was arrested in the 7500 block of Beechnut about 12:15 a.m. on Saturday (May 13). A photo of the suspect and a composite sketch distributed to some apartment tenants are attached to this news release.

HPD Officer P.R. Moreno of the Sex Crimes Unit reported:

Five women have positively identified Walker as their attacker and investigators are contacting a sixth woman believed to have been victimized by Walker. The female victims are all in their mid 20s and live in apartment complexes. In each case, they were approached outside of their apartments by the suspect, who asked to use their apartment telephones. The suspect used the excuse that his vehicle had broken down or someone had broken into it. After the suspect gained access into the apartment, usually by force, he threatened his victims by saying he had a gun. He then sexually assaulted them, asked for money, and then stole whatever cash they had.

The suspect is charged in or believed responsible for sexual assaults at the following apartment complexes:

April 4 at 3203 South Gessner Drive
April 11 at 3600 Woodchase
April 25 at 9850 Meadowglen Lane
May 4 at 9767 Pagewood
May 8 at 12101 Fondren
May 10 at 6363 West Airport

Investigators believe Ronald Walker might have victimized other women and are asking those women to contact the HPD Sex Crimes Unit at 713-308-1180.
