Three women sexually assaulted at southeast Houston taco truck, police say

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted three women working at an all-night food truck in southeast Houston.

The Houston Police Department says three women were working at the taco truck in the 6800 block of Griggs Road, shortly before 6 a.m. Saturday, when the man came up and demanded cash at gunpoint.

Investigators say the suspect then sexually assaulted all three of the women inside the truck before fleeing the scene.

The three victims were taken to the hospital.

The owner of the truck told ABC13 that she is no longer going to be open overnight and plans on adding security cameras inside and outside the truck. The owner said the women are recovering from the attack and she is paying their medical bills.
