HOUSTON—The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a suspect wanted for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old after meeting her on social media.
The teenager met the suspect online and communicated with him for several months via text message, according to investigators.
The man then initiated a face-to-face meeting in November 2011, when he picked up the victim at her home and drove to a remote location in north Harris County.
He is accused of assaulting her, forcing her out of his car and fleeing the scene.
The victim only knew the man as "Juan," which may or may not be his real name. He is described as being in his late teens or early twenties, 5’5" to 5’8" with an average to stocky build. He was driving a four-door, older model Honda, possibly green in color with a tan interior.
Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information called into 713-222-TIPS that leads to charges or arrest of the suspect.
