MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas - The suspect accused of an assault and attempted kidnapping of a woman at a cemetery has been arrested, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.
Charles Glaze, 53, was arrested by deputies Monday evening after victims positively identified him in a lineup, deputies said.
He is currently in the Montgomery County Jail.
Authorities said Glaze targeted at least two women at cemeteries.
The most recent victim told deputies she was visiting a loved one at the Klein Memorial Park Cemetery north of Tomball on Highway 249 on June 16.
The 48-year-old woman did not know the suspect but he approached her and made small talk before she was assaulted. Deputies say she was tased and a gun was pointed at her before she was bound and gagged.
The victim told deputies she was able to fight off her attacker and run through the cemetery to a nearby Magnolia Fire Station for help.
“The victim continued to fight, and wasn’t going willingly. The suspect had to carry the victim a long way from the scene and became fatigued with her fighting. We believe he just gave up,” said Lt. Scott Spencer, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.
After releasing information about the attempted kidnapping, investigators say a second woman has now come forward. She reported being approached by a similar suspect on May 14 at the Klein Memorial Cemetery in Tomball.
“During this incident, there was no assault that occurred, but the suspect made the victim feel uneasy and unsafe. At that time, the suspect ended up leaving. The victim took a picture of the suspect’s vehicle which also included the license plate of the suspect vehicle,” said Lt. Spencer.
Deputies described Glaze as a white man in his 50's, around six feet tall and 200 lbs. He was described as having graying hair with a receding front hairline.
He was driving a red Ford F-150, possibly a 2010 or newer model with chrome trim, similar to the Platinum Edition.
Officials believe he may have approached other women in the past.
