In August, 2019, a man was accused of sexually assaulting a young 13-year-old girl in her apartment complex. This incident occurred in northwest Houston, Texas. The accused man, Jeremy Jackson, 34 years old, is finally in police custody. This 34-year-old man was taken into police custody on the grounds of sexually raping the 13-year-old girl, in the mail room of her apartment complex in Houston.
Jeremy Jackson entered the apartment complex of this teenager located on Antoine Street. He then proceeded to rape her in broad daylight.
As per court documents, Jeremy Jackson has been charged with aggravated assault of this teenage girl. When taken in police custody, he was interrogated. Upon interrogation about his involvement in this assault, he completely denied any kind of involvement in this assault case. He claimed he had nothing to do with what happened to the victim, the 13-year-old teenage girl.
However, footage from the surveillance cameras, released in 2019, revealed the opposite. The video footage revealed that Jeremy Jackson was walking around the apartment complex on August 31, 2019. He was pacing around the apartment complex grounds while the teen was waiting in the mailroom of the same apartment building. After pacing around for a while, the 34-year-old Jackson entered the mail room of the apartment and attacked the young teenager. The assault occurred around 1 p.m. in the afternoon. After assaulting the victim, the suspect fled.
According to the victim, she said that could see Jackson pacing around the apartment complex and staring at her while doing so. The victim said that she thought that he was probably going to try and take her purse. Suddenly, Jackson revealed himself by entering the mail room. He then went on to attack her and rape her.
The detective in charge of investigating this case is Vanessa Garcia. Garcia, working under the Houston Police Department said that it was bold of Jackson to assault the victim in broad daylight, at 1 p.m. in the afternoon. There was a high chance that he would’ve been seen by someone and gotten caught for assaulting the victim. However, there were no eyewitnesses of this unfortunate incident.
The mother of the 13-year-old victim said that she had sent her daughter to get the mail. The mother said that owing to the fact that she had had a C-section just 10 days prior to 31st August, 2019, she could not walk. She had been advised by her doctors to take rest and avoid walking. That is why she had sent her daughter downstairs to the mailroom, to get the mail.
Upon the revelation of the CCTV footage and investigation conducted by the Houston Police Department, the court documents have reported that Jackson’s DNA has matched the DNA in the evidence collected after the assault. Jeremy Jackson was arrested on Thursday, April 1, 2021.
