HOUSTON (CBS Houston) The Harris County Sheriff’s Office has identified a man in an evading and burglary of a habitation incident; they are currently looking for the suspect.

Officials have identified 44-year-old Billy Ray Walters as the suspect and have charged him with evading arrest and burglary of a habitation.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office gives details of the circumstances surrounding the incident: “HCSO Dispatch received a 911 call from a female complainant stating her ex-boyfriend, suspect Walters, had broken into her residence and assaulted her. Walters then fled the residence after the complainant had phoned 911 in a black colored Jaguar. A responding HCSO unit spotted the vehicle matching the description and activated his emergency lights and attempted to make a traffic stop. The suspect then fled from deputies.”

A short pursuit ensued with Walters bailing out of the car he was driving. “The vehicle continued to roll onto the front drive of a residence [located on] Prairie Village and struck the garage door. The suspect continued to run and jump several fences and escaped into the subdivision. A perimeter was set up by several HCSO units and HCSO K9 was deployed. The suspect managed to elude the perimeter,” added the HCSO.

Authorities are looking for Walters and urge anyone with information as to his whereabouts to call 713-967-5810 or Crime Stoppers, 713-222-TIPS (8477). The Harris County Sheriff’s Office reminds tipsters that they can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
