Badge 1

UPDATE: March 19, 2014 @ 2:45pm 

Detectives assigned to the Dallas Police Department’s Child Exploitation Unit have completed the interviews related to the case involving David Rodriguez, L/M/ 5/4/72, (Service # 63512B and 61866B).  As a result of the interviews, Suspect Rodriguez will be charged with a total of 2 counts of Unlawful Restraint which is a State Jail Felony.

Based on the investigation detectives believe that there may be additional victims from offenses that that have gone unreported.  Therefore, we are releasing the suspect’s photo and asking that if anyone has information related to any possible offense involving this suspect they contact detectives at 214.671.4299 or 214.671.4211.

We will also be working with Northwest Patrol Division to assist in canvasing the apartment complex where the latest offense occurred to determine if there are any unreported offenses.

On March 17, 2014, Dallas police officers were dispatched to the Intersection of Park Lane and Dalecrest Drive on a major disturbance. Officers found that a child had reported “a man tried to take me” and that witnesses had chased the suspect from the area.

After setting up a perimeter and conducting a search, patrol officers took Rodriguez, David Vincent, L/M/05/04/1972 into custody.

Arrestee Rodriguez has also been identified as a suspect in an Indecency with a Child Offense that occurred on March 15, 2014 in the 2200 Block of S. Buckner Blvd.

At this time, the arrestee has been charged with a Hold for Arlington PD warrants, Aggravated Kidnapping (Service #63512-B) and Indecency with a Child (Service #61866-B).

As in all cases of this type, the investigation will include a review for any related offenses.

Potential child victims must be forensically interviewed before a formal case can be filed against the arrestee.  At this time our investigation is continuing and we request that the arrestee’s photo not be published pending the outcome of our interviews and line-ups.
