HPD Seeks Public's Help in Finding Aggravated Assault Suspect

May 4, 2007 - Houston police are seeking the public’s assistance in finding a suspect from an aggravated assault that occurred at 3925 Arlington Square about 9:44 p.m. on March 18.

The suspect, Juan Reza, (H/m DOB 6-8-84), is charged with aggravated assault in the 178th State District Court.

HPD Homicide Division Officer M. J. Ybañez reported:

Reza and his wife argued over the custody of their child, Daniel Reza, 2 years of age, after she told Reza she was leaving him because of his problems with alcohol and physical abuse. The two struggled over the child until Reza pulled a knife and threatened his wife with harm unless she let him have the child. Reza then fled with Daniel and has not been seen since.

On April 23, Reza’s wife’s vehicle was found parked near the El Expreso bus station at Main and Webster near downtown Houston. There was no indication in the vehicle as to where the suspect was going, and information at the bus station yielded no clues. At that time, Reza had Daniel with him. On Thursday (May 3), Daniel Reza was found unharmed, with relatives, in Dallas.

Juan Reza is 22 years old, 5 feet 3 inches tall, about 120 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes and a medium olive complexion. He has the word “Cholo” tattooed on his left calf. He sometimes uses the name “Francisco Valdez”. A photo of Reza is attached to this news release.

A warrant has been issued for Reza’s arrest.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Juan Reza or any other information in this case is urged to call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222- TIPS.
