Woman sexually assaulted, another bound during Watauga robbery

One of three men accused in a Watauga home invasion where a woman was sexually assaulted has a tattoo on his right hand with the word "Mookie" on it and another one on his neck with the word "Kathy," police said Wednesday.

The man is accused of sexually assaulting the woman while his two accomplices took an ATM card from the woman's apartment, got money out of a bank and used the card at a store, police said.

Three men knocked on the door and forced their way into the apartment about noon Tuesday in the 6700 block of Park Vista Boulevard and bound two women, ages 25 and 29, police said.

The suspects bound both women's hands behind their backs, police said. One woman was handcuffed and the other was tied with a cord, police said.

The three suspects took a computer and other electronic items from the apartment, police said.

"Two of them left the apartment with an ATM card and one stayed behind in the apartment guarding the women," Watauga Det. Jason Babcock said Wednesday.

At some point, the man with the tattoos is accused of sexually assaulting one of the women, police said.

"They called him back and he left the apartment," Babcock said of the accomplices.

One of the women managed to break free of her bonds about 2 p.m., went to the manager's office, and notified police.

One woman had two vehicles at the apartment and the suspects took both, police said. A white Chevrolet Tahoe was recovered about 6 p.m. Tuesday in Fort Worth.

But police continued their search Wednesday for a white Chevrolet Impala with Texas license plates BF1-Y174.

The man accused of sexual assault is African-American, about 19 to 20 years old, with short hair, about 5-foot-7, weighing about 160 pounds. He also has the "Mookie" and "Kathy" tattoos, police said.

The other two men also are African-American, but police had little other descriptions of them.

"They kept trying to conceal their faces," Babcock said.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about this crime to call their local police department.
