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.
