Photo released of man believed to have sexually assaulted jogger at Memorial Park

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston police released a sketch and a surveillance photo of a man who they say sexually assaulted and robbed a jogger in September at Memorial Park.

On Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2021, at approximately 11:30 p.m., the woman was robbed and sexually assaulted in the area of East Memorial Loop Drive.

According to Houston police, the 32-year-old victim was jogging on the trail when a man overpowered her. He forced her to get into a car where he sexually assaulted the woman.

The unidentified man drove the woman to a gas station where police say he demanded she get money out of an ATM and robbed her. He then drove her back and dropped her off at the Eastern Glades restroom.

Police say the suspect drove away from the scene in a white four-door, newer model sedan in an unknown direction.
