Denton police are looking for information surrounding a sexual assault that occurred at the Ridge Apartments on April 15.

According to the Jeanne Clery Act, universities are required to send out a timely notice after a sexual assault if it falls within a certain zone surrounding the campus. The Ridge Apartment complex falls outside of the university’s geographical zone, so no such notice was made.

“[The Suspect was a] black male with a medium skin tone in his late 20s, approximately 5’7”-5’10” in height, with a thin build,” according to an email sent out by the University Courtyard apartments. “The suspect had a sparsely filled mustache with a noticeable gap in the middle.”

The suspect followed the victim toward her apartment and forced his way into the apartment after she unlocked the door, according to a press release. No weapon was visible, but the suspect threatened to shoot or stab the victim, the police said.

Security cameras caught the suspect in this silver 2012 or 2014 Toyota Camry as he made “flirtatious comments” to other residents, the police said.

“While this did not occur at our apartment community, crime has no zip code and we want to remind you to lock your locks, be smart about where you store or leave your belongings, and be aware of your surroundings at all times,” the apartment staff said in an email.

If you have any information regarding the crime, contact Keith Smith at 940-349-7912 or
