Public Help Sought in Solving Series of Austin Sex Assaults

Austin police are appealing to the public for clues to the identity of a man suspected in a series of eight sexual assaults dating to late December.

The latest incident happened around midday Sunday when a woman walking around her apartment complex in northwestern Austin reported being grabbed from behind. She said the man fled after she screamed.

A Tuesday police statement says the man also is suspected in seven other north Austin sexual assaults. He's described as white or Hispanic, in his mid-20s, skinny and weighing about 150 pounds with short brown hair and dark eyes but whose face was partially covered by a mask. He was last seen wearing light-colored jeans with a dark gray short-sleeve shirt while wearing or carrying a gray long-sleeve or lightweight sweat shirt.
