Wife of Fort Hood Soldier Assaulted and Robbed in Her Home Twice This Month
A woman was assaulted and robbed in her own home on Fort Hood post twice in September. The woman, wife of a soldier on post whom news sources are not releasing the identity for safety concerns, was assaulted on September 11 at around 7 p.m. and then around 10:30 a.m. on September 20 in the Pershing Park housing area.
The suspect, is described as an African American male in his early 30s with dark brown eyes, short wavy hair and stands at approximately 5 feet, 7 inches. Both times he was seen in a maintenance-looking uniform with a blue short-sleeve shirt, long dark pants, dark work boats and black and yellow work gloves.
The man beat her unconscious on two separate occasions - the first on 9/11 weekend where the assailant needed credentials to be on post and then this past Tuesday, a period where he did not need credentials.
