Second Sexual Assault In Lake Highlands Area

Woman raped inside home on Ferndale Road on Friday night.

For the second time in weeks, police are investigating the sexual assault of a woman inside a home along Ferndale Road in the Lake Highlands area of Dallas.

Dallas police said the latest attacked happened Friday, March 15 around 10:00 p.m.  The suspect is described as a man in his 20's. He was 5'8" tall with a round, chubby clean shaven face and short buzz cut hair. He was wearing gray shorts and a jacket. The victim said the suspect spoke English with a Spanish accent.

The first assault happened at a home along Ferndale Road back around 12:45 a.m. on February 22, 2013.  Police said the man broke into the home in the 10800 block of Ferndale Road. The victim was asleep in bed when she was raped at knife point. Police said the suspect description in that case is different from the March 15 attack.

On March 1, Dallas Police officers arrested Fernando Munoz for outstanding warrants. The department also said DNA evidence linked Munoz to a 2010 sexual assault offense in Dallas.

Dallas detectives said they are testing DNA evidence to see if he is connected to as many as four rapes in the East Dallas area.
