Shreveport Police detectives are investigating the reported rape of an elderly female in west Shreveport.
At approximately 4:25 p.m. this afternoon, patrol officers were dispatched to a home in the 3000 block of Syphon Street relative to a sexual assault. Upon arrival, officers contacted an elderly female victim who advised them she been out today and when she arrived back home, she opened her door only to find an unknown male suspect inside. This suspect subsequently accosted the victim and sexually assaulted her. After the attack, the man fled the scene of the crime.

Detectives and crime scene investigators were notified and immediately began their investigation. Investigators believe the suspect entered the victim's home by breaking into a window at the rear of the residence. Detectives think he exited the dwelling through that same window.


Officers and detectives are working diligently at this time in a concerted effort to identify and apprehend this offender. The suspect has been described as a black male, approximately five feet six inches tall, who was last seen wearing a white t-shirt with a green bandana over his face. The Shreveport Police Department is asking anyone who may have information about this case to call detectives at 318-673-6955 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
