APD seeks persons of interest in sexual assault

Posted: Updated:

Austin Police are searching for two suspects that they say may be connected to a sexual assault.

In the early morning hours of October 11, a woman told Austin police she was walking, alone, to a nearby fast food restaurant.

"While she was walking she encountered several male subjects in a vehicle who pulled up," said Lt. Michael Eveleth with APD Violent Crimes Unit.

After talking for a bit, they offered her a ride.

"She ended up accepting a ride from them and over the course of the next hour she was sexually assaulted," Eveleth said.

According to police, while the assault was taking place, her wallet and credit cards were stolen.

"There were up to five people in the car," he said.

The group of men ended up letting her go dumping her in the same place they found her, the 9400 block of Lamar Boulevard, near Rundberg Lane.

It wasn't until this week that surveillance video, from several cameras in the area, was made available to police.

"Since then we've discovered that they've used her credit cards and we've got the information of where they used them and when. This week, we got video and the stills and went through those. We've released some of those and we're asking for the public's help in identifying the subjects that appear in that video," said Lt. Michael Eveleth with APD Violent Crimes Unit.

The suspects are described Hispanic males between the ages of 25 to 30 years of age. One suspect is between 5'2" to 5'5" in height and approximately 180 to 190 pounds with short hair and some facial hair. He was last seen wearing a white shirt with two crosses on the back and one large cross on the front, black shorts and black slide on sandals.

The other suspect is, 5'4" to 5'7" in height, about 190 to 200 pounds with short hair and clean shaven. He was last seen wearing a gray jersey shirt with dark sleeves, blue flannel shorts and black flip flops.

They were seen driving a white SUV with black trim, with a spare tire on the back. Police say it is possibly a Honda CRV.
