Donald Ray Farley Jr. is accused of assaulting an 11-year-old girl as she walked to the bus stop. It's been 10 months and he has not been arrested.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- It's been 10 months since a young girl was reportedly assaulted while walking toward the bus stop, and her alleged attacker is still on the run.

The incident happened on Feb. 15, 2022, in the Greenspoint area near Northborough and Ruschcreek. The 11-year-old told authorities she was walking to her bus stop from her home when the suspect, identified as 41-year-old Donald Ray Farley Jr., grabbed her by force and took her to some nearby apartments, records state.

The young girl said Farley threw her on the ground, held a knife to her neck, and sexually assaulted her. She was able to get away, documents state.

Farley has been charged with indecency with a child for the case, and a $5,000 reward is being offered to help find him.

"He is well known to people in that area, and we are hoping the public does what it does best," Andy Kahan with Crime Stoppers said. "I'm giving you up to 5,000 good reasons to turn (Farley) in before he harms yet another young girl."

Court records state the victim recognized Farley from a photo that was displayed in a store because he is "a problem in the area." What is not clear is when he became a suspect. Online records show that since February, Farley has been arrested five times on eight different charges not related to the attack. Many of the charges have been dismissed. Houston police would not clarify the timeline Thursday.

Anyone with information about Farley's whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
