Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers is offering a $1000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a male suspect who brutally raped an elderly female last weekend in west Shreveport.
At approximately 4:25 p.m. on January 22, 2011, patrol officers were dispatched to a home in the 3000 block of Syphon Street relative to a sexual assault. Upon arrival, officers contacted an elderly female victim who advised them she spent the day out and about and when she arrived back home, she opened her door only to find an unknown male suspect inside. This suspect subsequently accosted the victim and sexually assaulted her. After the attack, the man fled the scene of the crime.
Detectives and crime scene investigators were notified and immediately began their investigation. Investigators believe the suspect entered the victim's home by breaking into a window at the rear of the residence. Detectives think he exited the dwelling through that same window.
Officers and detectives are working diligently at this time in a concerted effort to identify and apprehend this offender. The suspect has been described as a black male, approximately five feet ten inches tall to six feet tall, who was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans with a green bandana over his face. He reportedly has a muscular build and a deep voice. The Shreveport Police Department is asking anyone who may have information about this case to call detectives at 318-673-6955 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
Anyone with any information regarding the identity of this suspect is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 or 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit them on the web at www.lockemup.org
