BEAUMONT - From Beaumont Police Department

A man wanted in a series of assaults against women in the north end of town may have attempted another attack late last night.

At about 11:15 p.m., a female was standing outside her residence in the 2000 block of Long Street. A man approached her and attempted to force her back into her residence. The woman resisted and began screaming. This action apparently scared off the suspect as he quickly fled the area heading north on foot.

Officers quickly arrived in the area. They set up a perimeter and began a track using our K-9 officers, but were unable to locate the suspect.

The victim, who was not physically injured in the assault, described the suspect as a black male, tall, thin, with a dark complexion, clean-shaven, with big eyes. She said he was wearing a red or burgundy hoodie pulled over his head. She further said that he reeked of body odor.

Detectives are working to determine if this latest incident is related to the three previous incidents.

Detectives enlisted the assistance of a forensic sketch artist to develop a possible image of the suspect wanted in this series of attacks. The attached sketch is an image of the suspect wanted for the previous three attacks.

If you recognize this man, or know his identity, we urge you to do the right thing and contact Beaumont Crime Stoppers at 409-833-TIPS. We will not ask for your name and if your information leads to the identity and arrest of this suspect, you could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

So far, in 2014, Crime Stoppers has paid over $15,000 in cash to people who have phoned in anonymous tips. Those tips lead to the arrest of over fifty suspects. Help be a part of keeping your neighborhood and family safer by phoning in anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers.  Attacker linked to sex assaults may be connected to attempted assault late Thursday night
