VIDEO: Possible Austin serial predator spotted on camera


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police released video Tuesday of the suspect in a Feb. 18 assault running from the scene. Neighbors that day say the attacker took the woman to the ground while she was jogging; when she screamed, the suspect took off.

Surveillance video showed the suspect in the 9100 block of Spicebrush Drive at 6:35 a.m, running through a homeowner’s yard. Police believe the suspect is the serial predator wanted for 15 sexual assaults and attacks on women throughout Austin.

Austin police hope the video may help someone identify the suspect, who is described as a black male with medium brown complexion, 30-40 years old, 5’7″ tall, about 165-175 lbs. He is also described as being clean shaven with a close haircut and stocky, muscular build.

The suspect was last seen wearing a black t-shirt over gray shorts. Police specified this is the only attack with this suspect description, in the other 14 cases the suspect has been described as a white or Hispanic man. This case is included in the 14 others, police say, because the suspect took the same approach of attacking the woman from behind while she was jogging.

15 cases Austin police are investigating: 

In January, the suspect was seen on surveillance footage near ACC Riverside:
