Surveillance Photos Released of Kidnapping / Rape Suspect's Vehicle

June 7, 2005 -- Investigators in the Houston Police Juvenile Division have released surveillance photos of a vehicle driven by a suspect wanted in the aggravated kidnapping and sexual assault of a 12-year-old boy on Saturday (June 4).

The van is a 1990-95 Short Wheel Base Chevrolet G-10, white in color with brown trim on the bottom, at least two large windows on each side, a small decorative ladder affixed to the back, running boards with amber lights, and possible decorated rims. On the rear left door is a white and chrome tire cover. The victim said there are curtains on the windows that may or may not be pulled back. Surveillance photos of the van are posted below. They were taken from cameras at the Dollar General Store in the 8300 block of Bellfort and reveal that the kidnapping occurred about 3:25 p.m. on Saturday, an hour later than originally believed.

HPD Juvenile Division Sergeant L.R. Ousley and Officer J.T. Roscoe of the Sex Crimes Unit reported:

The boy and his eight-year-old cousin were leaving the Dollar General Store when they met the suspect in the parking lot. The suspect told the boys he could not speak English and needed someone to order food for him at the McDonald’s restaurant across the street at 8320 Broadway. The children, both bilingual, agreed to go with the suspect and got into his van. The suspect gave the younger boy money and sent him into the restaurant to order the food. He then drove away with the 12-year-old in his vehicle. The suspect drove to a secluded area, had the victim disrobe, and then forcibly sexually assaulted him. After the assault, the suspect dropped off the victim at a Subway restaurant on Monroe at the Gulf Freeway. The victim then started walking and got a ride back to his home from a good Samaritan. The younger boy, after discovering the van and his cousin missing from the parking lot, walked home and told his parents what had happened. The parents called police.

Anyone with information on the suspect and vehicle wanted in this case is urged to contact the HPD Juvenile Division at 713-731-5335 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. Schepps Dairy is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the suspect.
