Crime of the Week

August 27, 2010 by Randy Keck

Parker County Sheriff’s investigators are seeking the public’s help in identifying a male suspect who attempted to forcefully enter a residence this weekend.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said a 19-year-old female victim reported she was home alone Saturday around 1:30 a.m., in the 100 block of West Tarrant Street in Millsap, when she went outside on her porch to let her dog in and saw a male standing at the corner of the home.

The victim stated the suspect lunged toward her and she quickly ran back into the residence and locked the door. She also told deputies the suspect tried to “ram” the door, grabbed the doorknob and began banging on the door in an attempt to enter the residence. The victim believes the suspect was scared away after he heard her “rack a round” in her rifle inside the front door of the home.

The suspect was described as a light-colored Hispanic or white male, 5-foot-eight to five-foot-ten inches tall, weighing approximately 180 to 200 pounds, was clean-shaven with short dark hair and wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt.

Sheriff Fowler said investigators are currently following up on leads. He added it is good practice to have residences well-lit with security systems and devices. Fowler also suggested forming a neighborhood watch group in all communities to aid in the prevention of crimes.

Anyone with information which leads to the arrest and indictment of the person involved in this crime is urged to call Parker County Crime Stoppers at (817) 599-5555 or 1-800-942-STOP. Up to a $1,000 reward will be paid for this information and you may remain anonymous.
