Police Release Composite Sketch of Serial Sexual Assault Suspect

October 30, 2006 -- Houston police have released a composite sketch of a suspect believed responsible for committing as many as six sexual assaults against women in the east and southeast sides of Houston.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his late 20s to early 30s. He is about 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds. He speaks English and Spanish. A composite sketch of the suspect is attached to this news release.

HPD Lieutenant M. Waterwall of the Sex Crimes Unit reported:

The suspect targets young women walking on public streets late at night, and apparently prefers prostitutes. The suspect asks a woman if she wants a ride and if the victim refuses to get into his vehicle, the suspect forces her into his car. The suspect then drives the victim to a predetermined, remote area where he sexually assaults her. If the victim refuses to comply, the suspect becomes violent. In at least three incidents, the suspect has driven a blue or dark four-door vehicle, possibly a Chevrolet Impala. In one case, the suspect drove a red Ford sport utility vehicle with a for sale sign in the window and in another case the suspect used a four-door white Ford vehicle. At this time, investigators believe one suspect has access to these vehicles and is responsible for the following six incidents:

  • On June 1, the victim, 22, was at 8200 Gulf Freeway (service road) and driven to 8600 Gulf Freeway (service road).
  • On August 15, the victim, 18, was in the 3800 block of Broadway and driven to 9100 Carsondale.
  • On October 1, the victim, 33, was at 6100 Gulf Freeway (service road) and driven to 9000 Carsondale.
  • On October 6, the victim, 21, was at 2800 Galveston Road and was sexually assaulted at the same location.
  • On October 16, the victim, 26, was walking outside 8003 Howard and driven to 9200 Carsondale.
  • On October 25, the victim, 22, was walking in the 8500 block of La Porte and driven to 9400 Lawndale.

Anyone with information on the suspect wanted in these cases is urged to contact the HPD Sex Crimes Unit at 713-308-1180 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
