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.

Detectives are asking that anyone with any information about this offense to please contact the Dallas Police Department’s Sex Assaults Unit at 214-671-4332.

DNA Links Sex Offender to Aggravated Sexual Assault

On December 12, 2015, in the early morning hours, a female victim was walking in the 1600 block of South Good Latimer Expressway when an unknown black male approached her.  The suspect knocked her to the ground, choked her, and then sexually assaulted her.  A passerby later found the victim unconscious and called for help.  The victim was transported to a hospital for her injuries and a forensic exam was completed.  Due to memory loss sustained as a result of her injuries, the victim was not able to provide detailed information about her attacker.  This offense was reported on case number 288517-2015.
