ORIGINAL RELEASE OCTOBER 20, 2020
On Monday, October 19, 2020 at 5:15 a.m., the Mansfield Police Department responded to an assault call in the 800 block of Kay Lynn Street. When officers arrived, they located a female victim who had been assaulted. The victim reported to officers that she was sitting inside her vehicle in a residential driveway. As she opened her driver’s door to exit her car, she saw an unknown suspect crouching near the rear of her vehicle. The suspect then began to assault her causing minor injuries. The victim began to yell for help and defended herself to the point where the suspect ran off. Detectives are uncertain of the motive in this offense and have not ruled out the possibility that the suspect was attempting to burglarize or steal the vehicle when he was surprised by the victim exiting the car.
The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s approximately 5’10”-6’ tall with twisted dreadlocks (approximately 3-5 inches long). He was last seen wearing a dark colored short-sleeve t-shirt and ran from the location on foot. The department is asking residents in the area to check their consumer video surveillance systems to see if you captured the suspect in the immediate area. Photographs from a nearby area believed to have captured the suspect’s image are attached to this release.
Detectives also believe that the suspect is involved in several vehicle burglaries in the area. Anyone with information is asked to contact Mansfield Detective Peacock at 817.276.4741. Tipsters can also remain anonymous by contacting Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at 817.469.TIPS.
