A La Marque High basketball coach is on the run and wanted by authorities for raping a 14-year-old girl, Houston police say.
Cedric Tyrone Mason, 41, assaulted the girl in his southeast side apartment on two different days in July, HPD says.
"A sexual assault exam was completed on the victim and evidence was collected," police say. "The HPD Crime Lab was able to link evidence found in the victim's sexual assault kit to the DNA of Cedric Mason."
The victim was not a La Marque High student.
