Keller police release sketch of rape suspect

KELLER -- An 18-year-old woman was raped at a city park during the weekend by an unidentified man whose accomplice stood by and watched, police said Thursday.

After the attack, the men jumped into a small white single cab truck parked at Bear Creek Park and drove off, police said.

Late Wednesday, police released a sketch of the woman’s attacker who is described as a heavy set white man, in his early 40s with a thin mustache and wearing thick-lens glasses.

Authorities have increased patrol units and bike patrols in the park area.

The attack happened about 11:50 p.m. Friday at the park in the 300 block of Bear Creek Parkway near a park gazebo.

The woman told police that she was sitting in a grassy area near the gazebo when she was approached by two men.

One of the men attacked her and the other stood nearby, police said.

The woman told police that the men were there almost 30 minutes before they left.

She reported the attack to police about 5 p.m. Saturday, according to police reports.

Her attacker was described as about 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-8, weighing about 250 pounds, brown hair, short haircut, blue eyes, wearing a black "OSU" sweat shirt with white letters and blue jeans.

The accomplice was described as a white man, about 6-foot to 6-foot-1-inches tall, about 210 pounds, in his late 20s or early 30s with dirty blond crew cut hair and long sunken face cheeks. He was wearing Khaki work pants, a short-sleeve gray T-shirt and tennis shoes.

The truck which the men drove off in had a left tail/brake light a different shade of red compared to the right side.
