The victim, 15 years old at the time of the incident, met the suspect via a social networking site, according to the sheriff's office. The two communicated for several months by text messages before the suspect initiated a face to face meeting in November 2011.
The suspect picked up the victim at her home and drove to a remote location in north Harris County where he sexually assaulted her, forced her out of his vehicle, and then fled the scene.
The suspect was known to the victim only as "Juan", which may or may not be his real name. He is believed to be in his late teens or early twenties, 5'5" to 5'8", average to stocky build, and a thin, neatly trimmed mustache. The suspect was driving a four door older model Honda, possibly green in color with a tan interior.
