While You Were Sleeping…

While you were sleeping, Dallas Police officers in the Central Patrol Division were hard at work capturing a suspect in a stolen vehicle and two other suspects who were breaking into vehicles.

Last night, at about 9:00 p.m., a victim called police to report that her vehicle was stolen from the 2800 block of Cityplace West Boulevard. A few hours later, another Dallas Police officer spotted a vehicle driving in the 2400 block of N. Haskell Avenue without any headlights illuminated. The officer stopped the vehicle and discovered that it had recently been stolen from Cityplace West Boulevard. The juvenile suspect was transported to the Youth Division at Police Headquarters and the vehicle was returned to the victim.

Later on, at about 3:00 a.m., officers working in a covert capacity spotted two suspicious individuals in the 700 block of N. Glasgow Drive. The suspects were walking down the street pulling on the door handles of parked cars. Officers watched as the suspects opened an unlocked vehicle and took property from inside the vehicle. Uniformed officers arrived and arrested the suspects for Burglary of a Motor Vehicle. The officers were also able to return the stolen property to the victim.

These are just a couple of examples of the great work our officers are doing every day and night to keep our city safe. Thank you!

Community Awareness Bulletin: Sexual Assault Suspect Downtown

Charges:

Sex Offender Duty to Register

Sexual Assault

Probation Violation Duty to Register

 

Dallas Police Detectives were unsuccessful in tying yesterday’s Sex Assault arrest to any other offenses at this time.

Update July 28, 2016 at 4:45 p.m.:

On July 3, 2016, at about 2:00 p.m., a female victim was sitting at a bus stop downtown when the suspect approached her.  The suspect told the victim to walk with him.  At this time the suspect led her to a stairwell near the 600 block of Houston Street Viaduct.  The suspect suddenly grabbed the victim and sexually assaulted her.  The suspect had a tattoo on his face and tattoos covering both arms and was described as a black male.  The suspect was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, green pants, and green tennis shoes.  

A suspect matching this description was found a short time later and brought in to be questioned by detectives. The victim was shown a photo lineup and she could not positively identify the suspect. DNA evidence was collected from the suspect.  The suspect was then released by detectives.

Late in the evening of July 25, 2016 just before midnight, another female victim, who had met the suspect a few days prior at the West End DART Station, saw the suspect and recognized him. The suspect and victim began to talk.

The victim and suspect walked through a parking lot between two buildings in downtown.  As they walked, the suspect grabbed the victim, pulled her into an unlit area and sexually assaulted her. In the morning, the victim fled towards a DART station and called police. DART Police responded and Dallas Police Sex Assault Detectives responded. 

The victim gave a description of a Black male in his 30’s, 5’5”, and added that he had tattoos on his face and she believed she knew his first name.

Given the close proximity in distance and the similar descriptions given, detectives immediately began working to determine whether or not these assaults were committed by the same suspect. 

This morning, detectives from the Dallas Police Sexual Assault team began working with  the Dallas Police Sex offender program detectives and a photo lineup was put together and shown to the victim from the July 25th  sex assault.  The second victim picked out the suspect in a six photo lineup and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

This afternoon members from Dallas Police Southwest Patrol Division, the Sex Offender Apprehension Team and Sex Assault Detectives arrested the suspect.  He will be charged with Sexual Assault F2, on a $150,000 bond, Failure to Comply with Registration Requirement for Sex Offender Registration Program F2, and a Probation Violation for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender F3.     

At this time we will not be releasing the name or the photo of the suspect because detectives need to speak to another victim.   We are asking the press to not release the suspect’s name and picture until we can meet with this victim.

Community Awareness: Indecent Exposure Suspect Sought

On the evening of June 21, 2016, at approximately 8:00 p.m., an adult female victim, a juvenile male victim, and a witness were inside their vehicle outside of the Greyhound Bus Station located at 205 S. Lamar Street to pick up a friend.  The bus was late, so they waited at 800 Jackson Street in a parking lot across the street from the bus station.  An unknown Black male approached the vehicle and began tapping on the window of their vehicle. When the occupants did not respond or open the window, the suspect stood outside the car for a while. The adult female moved her vehicle to a different parking spot, but the suspect followed and began to masturbate in her presence. The juvenile victim was also present and may have seen the suspect’s actions.  The suspect fled on foot before Dallas Police officers arrived.

The suspect is described as a Black male, who is approximately 25 to 35 years of age, 5’11” and thin.  He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, dark colored pants and white shoes.  The suspect had a blue jersey thrown over his shoulder.
