“He kind of laughed and wasn’t scared that anyone would see him,” the woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, told ABC13. “He grabbed my butt and tried to grab my crotch. He touched me inappropriately.”
Exclusive ABC13 camera footage from a neighbor captured a white sedan pulling up near the intersection of Pease and Delano Streets. A man matching the same description she gave — a black male, about 5ft 6in, late 30s, wearing a blue hoodie with white markings — is seen exiting the car rises
About a minute later, video shows the man getting back in the car and continuing up the block. He stopped and a woman was captured walking her dog. The man then got out of his car and followed the woman. Screams were then heard as the woman said she felt him grab her.
“I kept walking and crossing the street and my dog started growling and I realized someone was touching me,” she said. “I step back onto the sidewalk and I stood face to face with him and I started yelling and saying, ‘What do you think you’re doing?’ I was shocked. He tried again and it clicked, ‘This could get dangerous for me real quick.’”
The woman feared the worst and ran back to her house.
“When I ran away, he casually walked away,” she recalled. “He wasn’t worried that anyone would catch him. He didn’t look scared, he was happy like he was enjoying it.”
The victim filed a complaint with the Houston Police Department, who confirmed they were investigating. ABC13 has not heard whether there have been similar reports in the area matching the same description as the suspect.
The woman is grateful that nothing worse happened to her, but she believes that the fact that he was so bold shows that this is not the first time he has done something like this and it will not be the last .
“I know he’s not the only one,” she said. “We as a community can scare these people. You feel so empowered to be able to do this. You have to know that there are consequences.”
