Surveillance video shows Cleburne rape suspect
A man entered a Cleburne home Saturday morning and sexually assaulted a 62-year-old woman, Cleburne police said.
After the attack, the man ran from the home, and his image was captured in a video taken by a home surveillance camera. Cleburne police released the video Tuesday in hope that someone would recognize the man and alert authorities.
The attack occurred after 6 a.m. Saturday in north Cleburne near Cooke Elementary School. Cleburne is just more than 30 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
The woman told police she awoke and found a man dressed in dark clothing in her bedroom.
Police did not release any information on whether the suspect had a weapon or how he got into the home.
The man sexually assaulted the woman and ran, police said.
Police described the suspect as white, in his mid-20s and about 5-foot-9 to 5-foot-11 with a thin to medium build.
On Monday, authorities had asked for videos from outdoor home cameras in the neighborhood from 4-7 a.m. Saturday.
Authorities provided these home safety tips:
▪ Secure doors and windows with strong locks
▪ Keep windows covered with shades.
▪ Keep bushes and shrubs around your home trimmed.
▪ Use motion or other outdoor lighting to illuminate dark areas.
