The pictured suspect is a person we need help identifying for questioning regarding two sexual assault offenses that occurred early Saturday morning, October 21, 2017. The first offense occurred at approximately 2:00 a.m. The victim and suspect met in Deep Ellum.

This offense is documented on case number 240568-2017.

The second victim was walking home at approximately 2:57 a.m. from Deep Ellum. As she approached Elm and Harwood, she was grabbed by a suspect described as a 20-30 year old Black male, 5’10″ tall and weighing 200 pounds.  During the attack, she was on the phone with her boyfriend and he heard her screaming. The boyfriend ran to the scene and fought with the suspect.  The suspect ran from the location before officers arrived.  This offense is documented on case number 240598-2017.

Property Crime Tips

Property crime has always been a driving force to our crime rate, and with the holiday season quickly approaching, the Dallas Police Department would like to provide a few tips to help the community should you become the victim of a property crime. 

The most effective way to recover stolen property is through the property serial number. Citizens should record their property information, including description, make, model, and serial number on an inventory form. Should you become the victim of a property crime, be sure to provide the inventory list of your stolen property to the responding officer. This helps detectives locate stolen items at pawn shops or identify property items that may have been abandoned by the criminals. Completing this simple process increases your chances of recovering your property and speeds up the time it takes for you to get your items returned.OPID

If you are unable to locate a serial number on a particular item, you should take an inventory of that item and permanently mark it with your Texas Driver’s License or ID number. This can be easily done by utilizing a permanent ultra violet marker and writing the letters “TXDL” and your license or ID number on a non-removable part of the property that can be seen without having to disassemble.

State law specifies that one must be harmed or defrauded before an official Dallas Police report can be generated. A breach alone does not facilitate that type of action.

Equifax is working with their customers to freeze credit reports and the Dallas Police Department recommends that everyone regularly monitor their credit reports.  You may contact the Dallas Police Department Financial Crimes Unit at 214-671-3517 to make an offense report if you have evidence that you have been harmed or defrauded.
