La Porte Police Department News

LPISD student arrested for terroristic threats On Tuesday morning, May 22nd, 2018 the La Porte Independent School District received a report that a Lomax Junior High School student allegedly made a terroristic threat while riding the bus. The La Porte Police Department was immediately contacted, and immediately conducted a thorough investigation leading to the arrest of the 14 year old male Lomax Junior High student. School officials and the La Porte Police Department were made aware of this threat at approximately 8:30am this morning. After conducting the investigation, the School Resource Officer contacted the Harris County District Attorney’s Office who accepted the charge of Terroristic Threat on the juvenile. The juvenile was arrested and transported to Harris County Juvenile Probation Center. We again take this opportunity to remind parents to sit-down and talk with their children relating to the importance of school safety and make sure that each student understands that threatening violence on campus is not a “joking” matter. The safety of our children and the security of our school campuses is absolutely our number one priority. All threats will be investigated and all those making a threat will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Please Monitor La Porte Office of Emergency Management for updates on this incident.

LPPD Sketch leads to arrest of sexual assault suspect Early morning May 8th 2018, 37 year old Randy Baker of La Porte, Texas was taken into custody for the Aggravated Sexual Assault of Child. Baker is charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, reported late Sunday afternoon April 29, 2018, in the 600 block of South Broadway La Porte, Texas. The minor female was walking alone when approached near the La Porte Public Library and assaulted by Baker. The victim courageously provided information leading to the development of the attached sketch of the suspect. After releasing a sketch of the suspect, the La Porte Police Department (LPPD) received an anonymous tip, which ultimately led investigators to positively identify Baker as the suspect. LPPD detectives learned that Baker had fled the area soon after the crime. He was located in McKinney Texas where a warrant for his arrest was executed early this morning by LPPD Detectives who had traveled to the area. Chief Ken Adcox credited the arrest to an extraordinarily brave victim, a talented forensic artist, an involved citizenship, and relentless detective work. “Solving this horrible crime was possible only by everyone working together and it will ensure that our Mr. Baker will not be able to victimize anyone else,” said Chief Adcox. Baker is presently being held at the Collin County Jail awaiting return to Harris County, where he will answer for the crimes committed against the La Porte community.

LPPD Releases sketch of sexual assault suspect The La Porte Police Department received a report regarding an allegation of Sexual Assault of a minor female that occurred on Sunday night, April 29, 2018, in the 600 block of South Broadway La Porte, Texas. The minor female was walking alone when approached near the La Porte Public Library and assaulted by the unknown male suspect. This is an update to the first reported assault and NOT a second victim. The victim was able to provide information leading to the development of the attached sketch of the suspect. Additionally the victim gave more detailed information describing the tattoo on the right wrist of the suspect as black in color and the written word “Date”, not a numerical representation of a date. The victim also stated the font of the tattoo reminded her of the font similar to the one on a Time magazine cover. The victim detailed the “Lady” tattoo and advised this tattoo is centrally located on the chest of the suspect and depicts a portrait of a woman from the collar bone up. This tattoo is also all black. The victim believes there was lettering “surrounding” the image of the woman. This lettering was also similar to the word “date” on the right wrist of the suspect. It is possible this writing extends across the chest of the suspect. The victim again describes the suspect as a white male with short brown hair, a stubble beard, white skin, hazel eyes, and wearing a black tank top with white “boxers”. The suspect is believed to be in the 5’3” to 5’6” range. The La Porte Police Department is actively investigating this case. If you have any information that may assist in identifying the male suspect, please contact the La Porte Police Department at 281-471-2141.

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May.

La Porte, let us stand unified as a community of people of all faiths and pray not only for our community but for our country as well.
