Dallas, Bossier City police believe rape cases may be related
Updated 4:36 p.m. CT Nov. 2, 2018


Police in Dallas and Bossier City are investigating whether multiple sexual assaults in both cities may be connected to the same person.

Dallas Deputy Police Chief Thomas Castro said at a press conference on Friday that a serial rapist suspected of three sexual assaults in Dallas may be connected to two sexual assaults that occurred in Bossier City this past spring, The Dallas Morning News reported.

“Dallas Police Department detectives contacted Bossier City Police Department detectives in October to collaborate on the cases,” said Traci Landry, spokeswoman for the Bossier City Police Department.

In Bossier City, police are investigating a rape on March 29 on Preston Boulevard, along with a rape reported on April 11 on Beckett Street, Landry said.

“There are some similarities between the cases we are investigating and those under investigation by the Dallas Police Department,” she said.

Dallas Police said their suspect is a black male between 16 to 19 years old, stands 5-foot-8 tall and weighs 140 pounds. He was in the Bossier City and Shreveport area in March and April, but police said he is currently in Dallas. The suspect is also accused of assaulting three women in Dallas over the past two months.

According to the Dallas News report, in each case, a man knocked on a door and either asked the victim for money or said he was looking for work.

“The man then forced his way into each victim's home, flashed a weapon and sexually assaulted them,” the report states.

15-Year-Old Arrested In String Of Dallas Sexual Assaults
November 30, 2018 at 8:12 am

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas police have arrested a 15-year-old suspect in connection to three sexual assaults within the last few months.

The teenager’s identity was not released because he is a juvenile, according to police.

The department released a sketch of the suspect after two similar assaults happened a week apart in Far North Dallas in September. The suspect was also wanted in connection to two other sexual assaults in Bossier City, Louisiana earlier in the year.

In the Dallas cases, police say the suspect forced his way into apartments and sexually assaulted the residents.

The most recent incident happened on October 30 where, police say, the suspect sexually assaulted a resident at the Wildflower Apartments in northeast Dallas.

Police will also investigate if there is any connection between the teenager and the murder of a 23-year-old woman at an apartment complex near the Galleria on Tuesday.

Washington is accused of raping and strangling 23-year-old Maria Ezquerro on Nov. 27, 2018, according to court records. She was found dead in her apartment in the 5400 block of Peterson Lane, not far from where Washington lived.

He is accused in four rapes in Dallas and two in Louisiana, police have said. Most of the victims were women in their 20s, according to police.

In each of the Dallas rape cases, the attacker knocked on the victim’s door, then sexually assaulted the women after forcing his way inside and brandishing a weapon.

At the time of the attacks, Washington was 15.

Detectives said at the adult certification hearing that Washington approached Ezquerro at The Verge apartments in Far North Dallas and asked her to order him an Uber. He asked to go inside, saying he was cold, police said.
