APD looking for a face-tattooed man accused of attempted sex assault


AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department Sex Crimes Unit is asking for the public’s help in finding a suspect accused of trying to sexually assault a woman at a southeast Austin apartment complex early Thursday morning.

Austin police say it happened around 6 a.m. at the Saratoga Apartments on 6307 Bluff Springs Road.

The victim told police she was walking in her apartment complex when she saw the suspect. In a nearby breezeway, he then grabbed her by the back of her robe and tried to pull her down to the ground, but she was able to fight and free herself.

The suspect tried to grab her again, and punched the victim in the face multiple times, police say, but she was ultimately able to free herself and run away.

The suspect is described as:

  • Black male
  • 5’8″ to 6′ 0″ in height
  • Thin
  • Dark eyes
  • Dark complexion
  • Bald or very short dark hair
  • Last seen wearing a blue short-sleeved shirt
  • Hairy arms
  • Tattoo under each eye, about the size of a quarter in diameter

If you have any information, you’re asked to call (512) 974-5230 or 911 if you believe you’ve seen him.
