Community Awareness Bulletin

On February 17, 2016, between 4:45 p.m. and 5:15 p.m., a female victim was on the Katy Trail between mile marker number 104 and 105 when she observed a white male suspect in his mid-40’s  masturbating on a bench.  About 30 minutes later another victim who was running near the same area observed a person whom detectives believe is the same suspect, sitting on a bench with his penis exposed. The suspect then jumped off the bench and chased the second victim briefly. An unknown male in the area intervened and assisted the female victim.The suspect did not make contact with either victim. They described the suspect as a white male in his mid-40’s, wearing blue jeans and brown boots.

There were discrepancies in the suspect description presenting challenges to the investigation.
