Early last Thursday morning sheriff’s deputies arrested Damon Dove, 39, at his Missouri City home. According to Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel, Dove was arrested for sexually assaulting a Missouri City woman after he met her for drinks last Tuesday evening.
Haenel said, “Earlier in the day, she (the victim) met Dove and he asked her out for drinks later that evening.” After drinks, Dove reportedly drove this victim to an area out in the county’s jurisdiction, between First Colony Mall and the Brazos River and sexually assaulted her. Haenel said, “During the assault, the victim got out of the car and ran to a nearby home.” At 10:15 that night deputies responded to the call for help at the home where the 25 year old woman had run when she broke free from the assault. Dove was arrested on a warrant early Thursday morning.
Haenel said, “Records show Dove has been the suspect in several sexual assault cases in Fort Bend and Harris County which never resulted in prosecution. Those cases were similar in nature to this case.”
Dove is reportedly out on bond for similar cases in Harris County and Sugar Land. The Harris County case is for Aggravated Assault, the Sugar Land case is also a Sexual Assault case.
Detectives believe there may be more victims and are asking anyone who may have been victimized by Dove to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665.
