Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested and believed responsible for multiple sexual assault incidents in the Houston and Jersey Village areas since June 2014.
The suspect, Reginald Dwayne Bond (b/m, 37), is charged with five counts of burglary with intent to commit sexual assault in the 262nd State District Court. A photo of Bond is attached to this news release.
The suspect is believed responsible for incidents on the following dates and locations:
June 22, 2014 at 11011 Pleasant Colony (Jersey Village)April 26, 2015 at 9851 MeadowglenMay 17, 2015 at 11111 Pleasant Colony (Jersey Village)December 25, 2015 at 9801 MeadowglenJanuary 17, 2016 at 9801 Meadowglen
In each incident, Bond watched his female victims and then entered their residences during the early morning hours (3 a.m. to 5 a.m.). He would look around the residences and either stand by the victims’ beds to wake them with a flashlight or get into the beds before waking them. In some instances, Bond concealed his face while in others, he covered the victim’s face.
A preliminary investigation was initiated in June 2015. HPD investigators were contacted by Jersey Village Police regarding two sexual assault incidents believed committed by the same suspect. Evidence obtained from a June 2014 incident was entered into the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) and that profile matched that of a suspect wanted in as many as four incidents in the Ferguson County area of St. Louis, Missouri, since 2008. At that time, no further leads were found in the investigation.
In October 2015, evidence from the April 2015 incident was entered into the CODIS system and a profile was developed that matched the incidents in Jersey Village and St. Louis. Further investigation and evidence obtained from the December 2015 incident developed information that identified Bond as the suspect.
Further investigation and evidence obtained from the January 2016 incident identified Bond as the suspect in these cases. Bond was taken into custody on January 22 and has admitted his role in the incidents in Houston and Jersey Village.
Investigators believe there may be more victims and encourage anyone who has information on other possible incidents to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
