CYPRESS, TX – The title alone evokes images straight out of a horror movie, but that’s exactly what some people said about a teenager who walked half a mile for help after being brutally raped and beaten.
Police say Tuesday night at around 11 pm, a 16-year-old girl walked out of her home after getting into a fight with a relative.
As she made her way past Cypress Woods High School, a man walked up behind her and dragged her to a nearby field. There the man beat her in the head and face with a blunt object before raping her.
Throughout the entire ordeal, the girl played dead. “She doesn’t move, she doesn’t flinch and he does not say a word to her. He stands over her making sure that she was dead,” said Harris County Deputy Armando Tamez.
After the man left, the girl got up and stumbled a half mile to a Cinemark movie theater looking for help. She was covered in so much blood that witnesses thought the naked girl was wearing a red dress.
A security guard at the theater called 911, and the girl was airlifted to Memorial Hermann and is currently listed in critical but stable condition.
The suspect is described as a white male in his early 20s about 5-feet-10-inches tall with a muscular build and light colored eyes. Tamez says this guy is a nasty piece of work and from the damage done to the victim, he intended to kill her.
“This guy, there was absolutely no doubt in my mind. He did a real number on this girl,” he said.
Detectives are asking anyone with information to call the sheriff’s office at 713-755-6044 or call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
