Police Seeking Man Who Allegedly Takes Photos of Boys in Public Restrooms

Houston police are asking the public's help to identify a man who allegedly photographed a 13-year-old boy in a public library restroom.

The boy was using the restroom at 1050 Quitman "when he saw a cell phone appear under the stall," according to a Houston Police Department press release. "The phone was described as a black and blue Samsung cell phone with ear buds wrapped around it. The juvenile attempted to kick the phone, but the suspect moved it. The juvenile then left the restroom and waited for someone to come out but, after waiting a short time, he reported the incident to his mother. The mother then called HPD and library officials were notified."

Also: "Investigators believe the suspect has photographed other children."

The release describes the man as a black male, 35 to 45 years of age, approximately six feet tall and 185 to 200 pounds. Anyone with information on the identity of the wanted suspect is urged to contact the HPD Special Victims Division at 713-308-1100 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
