Houston police have released a composite sketch and are asking for the public's assistance in locating a suspect wanted in the sexual assault and shooting of a woman last week. We first told you about the story on Friday. Police say on July 21 at about 12:30am, the woman was attempting to enter her apartment in the 9800 block of Meadowglen Lane when she was attacked from behind by a masked suspect. According to police, the suspect sexually assaulted the woman in her apartment. He then forced her into her vehicle, drove around for several hours and then walked her into a field near the South Sam Houston Parkway West and FM 521. The suspect then shot the woman and fled the scene in her vehicle, police say.

The female victim, 27, suffered a gunshot wound to her left shoulder and was treated and released from an area hospital.

The suspect is described only as a black male, 25-30 years old, about 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a medium build. His hair was in corn rows, tied in a ponytail with beads at the back of the neck. He was last seen wearing a burgundy shirt, blue jeans with red and yellow letters on the leg, possibly spelling the word "Love," and Air Jordan tennis shoes with black tops and white soles.

Anyone with information in this case or who recognizes the male in the composite sketch is urged to contact the HPD Special Crimes Division at 713-308-1100 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
