On November 7, 2015, around 3:00 a.m., the victim of this offense got inside the vehicle near the 2900 block of McKinney Avenue and believed she was going to be given a ride home.   When the victim discovered she was not going to be driven to her destination, she demanded to be let out. The subject then drove to an undisclosed location and sexually assaulted the victim.

The subject was last seen leaving the gas station in the 4100 block of North Central Expressway on November 7, 2015, where he dropped off the victim between 3:30 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. We are releasing surveillance footage from the gas station in hopes that someone who may recognize the vehicle and/or the driver will call police with his identity.

If you have any information about this offence or you recognize this subject or vehicle in this video, please contact the Dallas Police Department’s Sexual Assaults Unit at 214-671-3584.
