About 3:00 a.m., on Thursday, September 26, a woman who lives on Rustic Chase Drive near Stone Leaf Drive in the Grand Mission subdivision was attacked and assaulted in her home. Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said, “The victim went into her bathroom to take a shower, noting she had no towels available, she walked back into her living room where an unknown black male was standing.”
Haenel went on to explain that the victim ran into her bedroom where she was followed by her assailant, who grabbed her inside the bedroom. According to Haenel, the intruder attempted to sexually assault the woman. The attack ended after the two engaged in a struggle and the woman began to pray loudly. Upon hearing her prayers, the intruder got up and ran out of the residence, said Haenel.
The victim told deputies the intruder had long, dark, curly hair similar to an “afro.” He is between 5-feet, 6-inches and 5-feet, 8-inches in height with a slim build. She said she believed him to be between 16 and 18 years old.
Anyone who may have seen the suspect entering or leaving the residence is asked to call Detective Tommy Thompson of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office Special Crimes Unit at 281-341-3863 or the Sheriff’s Office Dispatch at 281-341-4665.
