Houston- Investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office’s Special Victims Unit, and Crime Stoppers, need the public’s help in identifying and locating a person of interest wanted in connection with last month’s sexual assault of a 63 year-old woman in northwest Harris County.
Attached is a photo of a woman who walked into a nearby store on July 6, 2014 and tried to sell the victim’s cellphone to the store owner. The woman is only a person of interest and investigators would like to speak to her in hopes of obtaining the attacker’s identity.
In the early morning hours of Friday, June 20, 2014, HCSO deputies responded to a sexual assault at an apartment complex located in the 10000 block of Old Bammel North.
The victim, a 63 year-old woman, told deputies the suspect broke into her apartment by kicking in the patio door then raped her.
She told deputies the suspect threatened to kill her if she did not comply with his demands.
The suspect fled on foot but not before demanding money and other items from the apartment.
The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
The suspect is described as a black male between 20 and 30 years old, approximately 5’9″-6′ feet tall, of big build with a large belly. He had marks underneath both eyes. He was wearing a blue and white striped collar shirt, blue denim shorts, and black suede shoes.
A composite sketch of the suspect is also attached.
Anyone with information about the identity and/or location of the person of interest and/or suspect in this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or send a tip via iWatchHarrisCounty.
