Investigators Release Composite Sketch of Sexual Assault Suspect

February 23, 2007 -- Investigators in the Houston Police Department Sex Crimes Unit have released a composite sketch of a suspect believed responsible for sexual assaults against two women in southwest Houston.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 30s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall with a light to average build. In both incidents, he wore a heavy amount of cologne. A composite sketch of the suspect is attached to this news release.

HPD Sergeant C.S. Blomberg of the Homicide Division Sex Crimes Unit reported:

The suspect is believed to have burglarized an apartment and sexually assaulted a 25-year-old woman at the complex at 1800 El Paseo on December 8, 2006. He was wearing a ski mask at the time. Following the sexual assault, he stole the woman’s UT National Champion letter jacket.

A second incident occurred about 4:20 a.m. on January 9 when a 27-year-old woman was walking with her two young children to a transit center in the 6700 block of La Salette. As the woman passed the suspect, the suspect grabbed her buttocks and then kept walking. As the woman phoned police to report it, the suspect approached her, touched her again and then sexually assaulted her. The woman said the suspect was wearing a UT letter jacket and a heavy amount of cologne.

Investigators have learned a suspect with a similar description, and seen wearing a UT letter jacket, was reported as peeping in windows at an apartment complex at 9801 Meadowglen Lane on February 13.

Anyone with information on this suspect is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division Sex Crimes Unit at 713-308-1180.
