Texas police are searching for a man they say is likely involved in at least three sexual assault attacks in the Dallas area, where he uses a gun to force himself on women.
ABC News reports that all three assaults happened in different apartment complexes in the northern Dallas areas. According to authorities, the suspect knocked on three women’s doors and when they answered, forced his way inside after pretending to be a solicitor. In some instances, children were present in the homes, although they were unharmed.
The first and second assault, which occurred on September 12 and September 29, occurred within mile of each other, according to Dallas Deputy Police Chief Thomas Castro. In both attacks, the suspect knocked on the victims’ doors and asked for donations. He then forced his way into the apartments, pulled out a weapon, and sexually assaulted the victims.
The third attack happened around eight miles from the first two and the suspect repeated the same acts by knocking on the victim’s door, asking for a donation, then forcing his way inside. In one instance, he accepted a donation prior to attacking the victim.
“When somebody knocks on your door before you open the door, make sure you know who is out there, and what they want,” Castro warned.
The suspect is described as a black male who stands around 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighs around 140 pounds. He has brown eyes and black hair with a “box fade” haircut. He appeared to be around 18 to 20 years of age. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, black shirt with a red and white design on it, black and red shoes, and black pants.
Anyone with any information about the suspect is urged to contact Detective Brandi Kramer at 214-671-3613 or Detective Todd Haecker at 214-671-3610.
