According to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, a woman reported to authorities March 22 that she was walking on a trail near a detention pond in the Estates Trail Run subdivision.
The woman told MPs she walked past a man sitting on a bench and then he jumped at her and sexually assaulted her.
Fort Bend County Sheriff Eric Fagan told ABC13 that the victim was able to provide a draftsman with a detailed description of the suspect. This sketch was released by the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office in hopes that someone in the community will recognize the man.
“Someone knows who that person is,” Fagan said, “and look, it might not have been you, but it might be your sister, your mother, someone you care about might be the next victim.”
According to a press release from the FBCSO, the suspect is described as a black male with a dark complexion, short dark hair that reaches above ear length in a fearsome style, between the ages of 18 and 19, weighing approximately 185 pounds and 5ft 6in tall . The suspect was wearing a red polo shirt, dark pants and black shoes.
According to Fagan, the deputy chief of the nearby Arcola Police Department offered to help with the search and investigation.
Fagan said there will be more patrols in the area and warns the community to remain vigilant, travel in groups where possible and report suspicious activity.
“We are doing everything we can to solve this case,” Fagan said. “We have collected all the evidence and handed it over to the DPS to enter into CODIS. Hopefully we can find a match with that DNA. If that person did anything else, we can find a match, find out who that person is, and get them off our streets.”
Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4686 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers, Inc. at 281-342-TIPS (8477).
