Police: No serial rapist in area
Wilson County NewsJune 27, 2012 | 1,363 views | 4 comments
Police officials in Floresville and Poth are debunking rumors of a serial rapist terrorizing those cities.
“There is not a serial rapist active in these areas,” said Lt. Chad Clark of the Floresville Police Department in a press release issued June 21.
Chief Lambert Jendrzey of the Poth Police Department said his city has not had a report of a sexual assault this year. In Floresville, Clark said three such offenses have been reported. Two of the investigations, which involved children, have been cleared and the third involves an adult victim who has not cooperated with the investigation, he said.
Despite this, Clark said the department has received numerous calls from in and around Floresville. Jendrzey said he received concerned calls from as far away as Karnes City. At least three such inquiries were made to the Wilson County News.
“The citizens have nothing to fear,” Clark said. “There is no serial rapist in or around Floresville.”
Anyone who is a victim of a sexual assault is urged to immediately call 911.
