Harris County Sheriff’s Office Release Suspect Sketch in Hate Crime

What: The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance with identifying a man suspected of stabbing a woman with a knife while shouting anti-Islamic slurs at her.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours of April 5 somewhere along the 10000 block of Huffmeister Road, when a woman says her vehicle was nearly struck by an oncoming red SUV.

When the woman, who had just finished her shift as a hospital nurse, stopped to compose herself, a man who was driving the SUV confronted her with a knife, yelling ethnic slurs at her before slashing her in the arm.

The victim has now helped a forensic artist develop a sketch of the suspect.

Who: Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, CAIR Texas Executive Director Mustafaa Carroll and Lt. Jeff Stauber of the HCSO Violent Crimes Unit

When: Thursday, April 19 at 11:15 a.m.
