HPD Seeks Public’s Help in Locating Possible Serial Sexual Assault Suspect

HPD is seeking the public’s help in locating a possible serial sexual assault suspect believed to be responsible for multiple cases dating from early 2019 to January 2020.

The suspect, Brandon Jay Carter (b/m, 28), is charged with aggravated sexual assault and credit/debit card abuse in the 351st State District Court.  A prior booking photo of Carter is attached to this news release.

HPD Special Victims Division Detectives D.R. Daniel and J.E. Garza reported:

Investigators believe Carter first monitors his female victims and then breaks into their apartment at night or approaches them, armed with a pistol, as they are entering or exiting their residence.  After threatening them, Carter then ties up the victims, and after ensuring they cannot see, sexually assaults them.  He then attempts to remove any evidence that may connect him to the sexual assaults.

Carter is believed to be responsible for multiple sexual assaults through southwest Houston, west Houston, and the Greenspoint area.  He is known to have lived in the Greenspoint area and has been known to stay in motels and with friends.

Anyone with information on Carter’s whereabouts, or who believe they may have been one of his victims, is urged to contact the HPD Special Victims Division Adult Sex Crimes Unit at 713-308-1180 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
