HOUSTON —The public’s help is needed in identifying a suspect wanted in at least three sexual assault cases in southeast Houston, police said early Friday.

Victims described the suspect as a black male in his late 20s. He is about 6 feet tall and has a medium build and a medium complexion. He has a “wide” smile and a fade-style haircut, according to the Houston Police Department.

Police said the incidents occurred May 24 at 2:15 a.m., May 31 at 11:10 p.m., and July 3 at 3:50 a.m.

Investigators said in all three cases, the man was driving a white, newer model four-door vehicle with light tint on the windows and a dark interior. He would pick up the victims and drive them to a vacant residence where he sexually assaulted them.

The most recent victim said she was walking in the area of Yellowstone and Martin Luther King Boulevard when the man approached her and asked if she wanted a ride. The suspect managed to talk the victim into his car and then drove her to a vacant residence in the 5900 block of Southtown.

Police said the suspect then forced the victim out of the car and took her to the back of the house where he physically and sexually assaulted her. The suspect also allegedly took the victim’s purse. The victim said she struggled with the suspect and managed to escape.

“He punches them in the face, in the head, he physically attacks them. He’s violent in his attacks,” Sgt John Colburn, HPD’s Special Crimes Division, said.

Anyone with information in these cases or on the identity of the suspect is urged to contact the HPD Special Crimes Division at 713-308-1100 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
