A west Houston woman was sexually assaulted after a man posing as an off duty police officer gave her a ride last Thursday around 1:30 am. 

The man pulled over in a late model BMW and flashed a badge to win the woman’s confidence after she had a flat tire on Dairy Ashford and I-10.  The woman told authorities she was on the side of the road with a flat tire when Francisco Jose Ugarte offered to drive her home.  Instead Ugarte took the woman to a parking garage and sexually assaulted her.  The victim walked to a gas station and asked for help. 

The Police department said the suspect’s photo would not be released and is asking more victims to come forward.  He is described as a Latino male about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing about 175 pounds.  He is light, with straight dark hair, with facial hair. 

The suspect’s vehicle is a maroon 2008 BMW sedan.   Anyone with information can call Houston Police Sex Crimes at 713.308.1180.
