On September 19 at around 6am, a female victim was waiting at a bus stop located near the 14000 block of Ella Boulevard. While waiting, investigators say the victim was approached by an unidentified black male suspect. The suspect drew a gun on the victim and demanded her purse. The victim surrendered her purse and allowed the suspect to rifle through it.
After finding two credit cards, the suspect asked for her pin numbers, which she disclosed. She was then led down the street to a nearby bayou by the suspect. Deputies say he demanded the victim remove her clothing, and began to sexually assault her. During the sexual assault, the victim attempted to take the suspect's weapon. A struggle ensued and the victim was able to flee the area.
The suspect is described as a black male, between the ages of 25-35 years, standing approximately 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing between 220-250 lbs. At the time of the offense, the suspect wore a black and red baseball cap, a white sleeveless shirt, blue jean shorts and tennis shoes.
Surveillance cameras captured the suspect using the victim's stolen credit card shortly after the assault.
