Houston-area rapist preying on men
Police suspect some victims are too ashamed to come forward

Updated: 1 hour, 22 minutes ago
HOUSTON - A rapist who preys on young men has struck five times in the Houston area since mid-September, and police said Monday there may be even more victims, but they are too ashamed to come forward.

The rapist typically stalks, robs and sexually assaults his victims at gunpoint, apparently choosing them at random and attacking them near or inside their homes, police said. The most recent attack was Nov. 30.

The victims have all been men in their late teens.

“I wish we had a link between the victims, because we might have a better chance of catching him,” said Lt. Richard Whitaker of the police department in Baytown, where two of the attacks took place. “We don’t have any affirmative links at all.”

He said some victims may be reluctant to come forward because of their ages and “a pride thing” that makes men resist acknowledging being the victim of a sex crime.

Investigators believe that rape is the motive, even though some victims were robbed. DNA testing is under way in an effort to identify the attacker.

In some cases, the attacker approached his victim outside the person's home. Other times, he broke into the home.

“I think he just sees one that he prefers, and then he begins to follow them and gather information, finding out where they live and watching their house,” Whitaker said.

Victims have described the attacker as a clean-shaven man, 18 to 21 years old, 5-foot-6 to 6 feet tall, with a shaved head.

Wow, talk about an ass bandit.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
