Suspected rapist being sought by Liberty County law enforcement

The Liberty County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect in an alleged rape that occurred between 4-5pm on Saturday.

According to a statement from the sheriff's office, the assailant is described as a dark-skinned black male, 6' tall, chubby and short curly hair with greying at the temples. He was wearing blue jeans and work boots with paint on them, and driving a red Chevrolet two-door extended cab pickup truck with chrome wheels and a bench seat. He also had several black-colored Christmas tree air fresheners hanging inside his truck.

The sexual assault reportedly occurred after the 30-year-old female victim had a flat on her vehicle in front of the Valero gas station at 9499 US 90 West in Dayton.
