This Is the Guy Who Brutally Raped a Woman on South Gessner
Houston police have released a composite sketch of the man suspected of assaulting and raping a woman on the west side earlier this month.
The woman was near the intersection of South Gessner and Harwin about 6:30 a.m., December 4, police say, when the attack occurred.
A "Ford Bronco or Chevrolet Tahoe, was maroon with a maroon cloth interior," pulled up to the woman and the suspect forced her into the vehicle, HPD says.
He then drove her to a nearby vacant lot where he assaulted and raped her. She managed to escape to a nearby apartment complex and call police.
