Round Rock Police Searching For Attempted Sexual Assault Suspect

Updated: Friday, July 11 2014, 06:38 PM CDT

An attempted rapist is on the run and Round Rock Police need your help fighting back.

Investigators say around 9:45 p.m. Tuesday a victim walking home from a jog at Caldwell Heights Elementary School was grabbed from behind.

The suspect pushed her to the ground and attempted to assault her in the 1300 block of Terra Street.

Luckily a neighbor was home at the time.

"The victim was screaming for help. The neighbor opened her door to investigate. As she opened her door, the suspect jumped up and was last seen running through the neighborhood," said Commander Alain Babin.

Resident Amanda Ruelas says it is usual for people to be active at night in the Eagles Nest neighborhood.

"We do go walking with my family all seven of us every single night around 8 o'clock," said Ruelas.

But what's unusual is feeling uneasy.

"It's a very safe neighborhood," she said.

Now three days after the incident police have exhausted their resources and need the public's help.

The suspect is described as a white male, 19 to 20 years old, 5'9" tall, approximately 130-150 lbs., thin mustache, suntanned complexion, brown hair and brown eyes and a thin athletic build. He was last seen wearing a Navy blue pullover hooded sweatshirt with raised yellow or gold lettering on the front, blue jeans and white sneakers, investigators say.

Until the man is caught police have this advice.

"Don't walk in dark places, trying to stay in well-lit places. Try to stay in places where there are other people there," said Babin.

In the meantime RRPD plans on patrolling the area ensuring everyone is safe.

"This is the first time I've felt fearful of being in my home with that happening and now hearing this," said Ruelas.

Anyone having information on this incident is asked to contact Williamson County Crime Stoppers at 800-253-7867, Detective Villegas at the Round Rock Police Department at 512-671-2709 or you can text a tip by texting RRPD plus your tip information.
