Updated on February 8, 2019 

On February 7, 2019, the Dallas Police Department received a report from the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences which confirmed the DNA profile obtained from the victim’s forensic exam matched the DNA profile of Dralon Patterson.  Mr. Patterson has already been charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault in this offense and is in jail on $250,000 bond.

DNA has also linked Dralon Patterson to a Sexual Assault which is documented on Case #263874-2017.  On November 19, 2017, at approximately 12:30 a.m., the 26-year-old female complainant was walking to her car in the 3100 block of Lemmon Avenue after a night out at the West Village.  The complainant encountered the suspect and was sexually assaulted inside a vehicle.  The complainant was dropped off after the assault.  The complainant immediately went to a hospital for a forensic exam.  The DNA profile obtained from that exam matched the DNA profile of Dralon Patterson.  Detectives are currently preparing the arrest warrant to charge Dralon Patterson with Sexual Assault in the 2017 case.

When they arrived at the location, a motel in the 9500 block of Forest Lane, they tried to make contact with the suspect. But the suspect jumped out of an elevated window and took off running. Officers ran after the suspect and saw that he was wearing body armor and was armed with a handgun.

During the pursuit, the suspect pointed his weapon toward his head multiple times and made threats to shoot himself. The suspect was able to briefly elude officers when he ran into a wooded area. The officers could hear several shots being fired in the wooded area. The suspect came out of the wooded area and ran into an apartment complex where he carjacked a female driver of an SUV at gunpoint. After the suspect entered the vehicle, shots were fired at the vehicle. The suspect drove the SUV through the apartment complex, smashed through the entrance gate where he lost control, and crashed into a light pole.

The suspect got out of the car and ran away again. He scaled a large wall and entered the backyard of a residence in a gated community in the 12200 block of Jackson Creek Drive. The suspect ran to the front of the residence and got into a vehicle parked in the driveway. The suspect then got out of the vehicle, ran across the street into an open garage, and then into a house. The homeowner confronted the suspect and the suspect left. Officers of the Dallas Police Department and Dallas County Community College Police Officers were positioned outside of that house. When the suspect came out of the house, he was still armed with a knife. Officers gave verbal commands to drop the knife. After the suspect would not comply with those commands, officers fired their weapons striking the suspect. The officers administered first aid to the suspect and he was taken to an area hospital.
