North Austin Sex Assault Suspect

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:08 PM CDT
Austin police say a man wanted for a string of sexual assaults over the last nine months raped a 13-year-old girl in an apartment complex laundry room.

Edgar Casas, 25, is already charged with sexual assault in an incident that happened earlier this month on Gessner Drive, near I-35 and Hwy 183.

Now, Casa is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first degree felony.

The arrest affidavit says he attacked the girl last November when she went to an apartment complex laundry room to move a load of towels for the washer to the dryer. Casas was in the room when the girl entered and asked her about the rent and where the office was. She told him she didn’t know and he left, but as she was closing the washer he grabbed her from behind and sexually assaulted her.

Police say the attacks started in August of last year. They say in most situations, the suspect approaches the victims in the parking lots or laundry rooms of apartment complexes. In many instances the victims have had children with them -- but this has not deterred the suspect.

Casas is not in custody. Anyone with information about his whereabouts or information about the case may call the Sex Crimes Unit at 974-5095 or call Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS or text to "Tip 103" your message to C R I M E S. You may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 if your tip leads to an arrest or charges being filed. Sketch from Austin police.
