Police today released composite sketches of three suspects in the Nov. 6 kidnapping, beating and sexual assault of a woman in the presence of her 4-year-old daughter, a brazen daytime crime that rattled the community and stoke fears about challenged San Marcos’ conception of itself as a small, peaceful university town.
The composites were developed with the assistance of the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Rangers.
“It has taken us time to work with the victim as she recovered from injuries and this traumatic incident and the DPS forensic artist to complete these composite sketches,” San Marcos police Cmdr. Penny Dunn said.

Many tips were received on the suspect vehicle, including six that came in through Hays County Crime Stoppers. Multiple investigators and crime analysts from the San Marcos Police Department, the Hays County Sheriff’s Office, Kyle Police, Texas Rangers and ARIC are sifting through the leads.
The incident occurred on the east end of McKie Street approaching the access road of Interstate 35, west of the highway. This area is near a low-water crossing with heavy vegetation growing near the street. The woman was driving on McKie Street when her vehicle was bumped on the rear bumper by another vehicle. When the woman got out to check for damage, she was forced into the back seat of her own vehicle two suspects as a third followed in the truck.
The woman’s head was covered and she was taken to an unknown location where she was sexually assaulted, strangled, and eventually lost consciousness, Dunn said.
The unconscious victim and her child were later left in their vehicle parked on the side of a roadway outside of San Marcos. The victim regained consciousness and was disoriented but was able to return to her residence where Police and Emergency Medical Services were summoned.Email | Print
