Composite Sketch Released in Sexual Assault Investigation


Investigators in the Houston Police Department’s Special Crimes Division are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect believed responsible for at least four sexual assault incidents in the southwest Houston area since June 2009.

Wanted SuspectThe suspect is described only as a strong and muscular black male, 20 to 40 years of age, 6 feet tall and about 200 to 240 pounds. He was wearing a dark shirt, jeans and a baseball cap. In the most recent incident, he was wearing dark colored hospital scrubs. A composite sketch of the suspect is attached to this news release.

The incidents occurred at apartments at the following locations:

• 8300 El Mundo - about 2:55 a.m. on June 6, 2009 (sexual assault)
• 1800 El Paseo - about 4:45 a.m. on Oct. 1 (sexual assault)
• 8100 Cambridge - about 8 a.m. on Oct. 16 (attempted sexual assault)
• 8400 West Bartell - about 1:40 a.m. on Feb. 19 (attempted sexual assault)

In all four incidents, the female victims were home alone when they were confronted by the suspect. In the most recent incident on West Bartell, the victim was asleep on the couch and awoke to see the suspect coming down the hall from her bedroom to her living room area. The suspect did not speak as he began hitting and choking the victim. She then managed to escape the apartment.

Anyone with information on these incidents or on the identity of the wanted suspect is urged to contact Officer Mike Ybañez of the HPD Special Crimes Division at 713-308-1180 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
