Composite Sketch of Suspect Wanted in Assault at 9500 Jaywood

July 22, 2016 - Houston police have released a composite sketch of a suspect wanted for assaulting a male at 9500 Jaywood about 1:55 a.m. on July 6.  

The suspect is described only as a Hispanic male with a medium build, a partial mustache and three-day beard.  He is also believed to have smelled of alcohol at the time of the attack.  He was driving a 1997 to 2000 white Ford pickup truck with a missing driver's side mirror.

A composite sketch of the suspect is attached to this news release.

The victim, 25, was leaving for work and turned onto Gulf Bank when his vehicle was struck by the suspect's vehicle on the left rear side bumper.  The suspect continued driving after striking the victim's truck and the victim attempted to follow in order to get the license plate and take a photo of the truck.  

The suspect then drove to the next block and stopped and got out his truck.  The victim also exited his vehicle.  As the victim attempted to exchange information with the suspect, the suspect pulled a machete out of the truck and chased him on foot.  As the victim attempted to flee on foot, he fell and the suspect struck him several times in the back with the machete, causing major injuries.  The victim attempted to get up and run to his residence on Jaywood, but fell again and was struck by the suspect several more times in the arms and hands.  The suspect then returned to his vehicle and fled.

Anyone with information on the suspect's identity or in this case is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
