Lubbock Police Search for Rapist

Lubbock Police are searching for the man who tried to kidnap and rape two Lubbock women. Thursday night a 21-year-old woman was forcefully taken from the Town and Country on 19th Street, at about 8:15 p.m. The suspect drove her to East 19th and Compress Avenue where he handcuffed her, used a stun gun or a taser on her, and attempted to sexually assault the victim. She was able to escape and reported the incident to law enforcement.

A similar incident happened a week ago when a woman in her mid thirties left the Library Club. Around 2:45 in the morning the suspect offered her a ride at the 200 block of I-27. Instead of taking her home, he took her to a parking lot at Mackenzie Park, north of Joyland. He attempted to sexually assault her using a taser or a stun gun, but she also escaped.

Police say the two cases are very similar and possibly linked.

They warn people to be careful when going out at night. "If you're going to go out, it's always a safe bet to go out in groups. I don't know that we've ever had an incident where someone has been kidnapped under these circumstances, when they're in a group. So, certainly go out in groups if you decide you want to go out, just be vigilant, said Jon Caspell of the Lubbock Police Department.

Police are looking for the suspect described as a Hispanic male with short black hair, blue eyes, approximately 6 feet tall, and weighs 200 pounds. He is known to drive a white SUV, possibly a Tahoe or Suburban.

If you know anything about either case police ask you to contact the Crimeline at (806) 741-1000.
