HOUSTON A woman was sexually assaulted Tuesday in the Cypress area, and the case could be related to others, deputies said.
It happened around 3 p.m. on Sableton Crest Lane in the Cypress Landing subdivision.
The woman, who is a wife and mother of two, had just got home from work. Deputies said a man was watching her and seconds later, her door was kicked in. The woman was attacked while her children were on their way home from school.
She s a very sweet lady, she s always taking care of my little brother whenever he s around. We didn t expect anything like that to happen, especially to her, said Enrique Zuniga.
Felicia Mitchell, another neighbor, said she saw the victim minutes after the attack.
I m very concerned about this, because I m right here. This is in my neighborhood, it s down the street from me, said Mitchell. She walked to the ambulance. She seemed pretty shaken up.
Deputies said they think the attacker could be the same man who raped a woman three miles away earlier this month. In that case, the woman s kids were home, but in another room.
Detectives also said the same man may have gone after another woman in a park five miles away.
Deputies are working on an exact description of the suspect. Call Crime Stoppers with any information at 713-222-TIPS.
