Community Awareness Bulletin – Uptown

Over the last 14 months there have been four reports of assaults on females that have occurred in the Uptown area of Dallas.  Each assault happened on a Sunday in the early morning hours between 12:45 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. where the female was alone walking toward her apartment building.  None of the females were able to give a detailed description of the suspect because in each case they were grabbed from behind.

One October 2, 2016, at 12:45 a.m., a 27-year-old female was alone walking in the 3200 block of Fairmount and arrived at the entrance to the apartment complex when she was grabbed and assaulted by an unknown male.  The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5-06, heavy set, with black hair slicked back and no facial hair.  He was wearing a white button-down shirt and gray dress pants. 

On December 4, 2016, at about 1:30 a.m., a 23-year-old female was alone walking in the 3000 block of Bookhout Street.  When the victim screamed for help, the suspect fled on foot.  The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5’05, 160 pounds, with short brown hair.  He was wearing a long sleeve white shirt and dark colored pants.

On July 23, 2017, at about 2:30 a.m., a 24-year-old female was walking alone in the 2800 block of Bookhout Street toward the entrance of her apartment complex when the suspect grabbed her from behind and assaulted her.  The female kicked him off of her.  The female could not provide a description of the suspect.

On December 3, 2017, at about 2:30 a.m., a 23-year-old female was walking alone in the 2800 block of Cole Avenue toward her apartment complex.  As the complainant entered a gate, she was pushed into a stairwell and assaulted.  The suspect was described as a possibly Hispanic male, 5-10, with dark hair.  No further description was provided.

At this time we are not definitive that this is the same suspect in all four offenses.
