Authorities in Texas released a composite sketch today of a man they say kidnapped and sexually assaulted a woman at a local shopping mall earlier this month.

Houston Police are seeking the man in connection with kidnapping and sexually assaulting a female employee of the Baybrook Mall on December 6, 2013.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic or Middle Eastern male in his early 20's, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing approximately 180 pounds. He reportedly had a feminine voice and was wearing a gauge earring, about the size of a quarter, in each ear.

According to police, the twenty-four year-old victim was reportedly walking to her car in the mall parking lot after finishing her shift. She was seated inside the vehicle when an unknown male (suspect) drove up to her vehicle. The male began waving at her using the light from his cell phone to get her attention.

The victim believed the man needed help and opened her car door. At that time, the male told the woman he had a weapon in his pocket, and demanded she get into his vehicle, which was only described as "tan". The suspect reportedly drove the woman to an unknown location near the mall, where he physically and sexually assaulted her. The woman was then driven back and dropped off at the mall parking lot, and the suspect fled the scene.

Houston Police are urging anyone with information in this case to contact the HPD Special Crimes Division at 713-308-1100 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
