San Antonio, Texas, September 7, 2017: Today, a Bexar County Grand Jury returned six indictments against Anton Jamail Harris, age 18, for the charges of Aggravated Sexual Assault and Aggravated Robbery. Beginning in June 2015, the defendant went on a two year crime spree in the Medical Center area targeting women. Evidence reveals Harris would follow his victims to their apartment doors and force his way inside, threatening them with a knife or gun. Harris would then sexually assault them and take their property. In some cases, Harris would knock on the victims’ apartment doors and would then assault them.
San Antonio Police Department’s Special Victims Unit identified Harris as a person of interest after he matched the description of the suspect given to them by his victims. Detectives were able to get DNA from Harris and he was arrested on June 8th after DNA matched evidence from the sexual assaults. The defendant remains in the Bexar County Jail on bonds totaling $775,000. All six indictments are first degree felonies, punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. Harris is awaiting trial out of the 399th District Court.
