Lake Dallas police are holding a community meeting at 7 p.m. Monday after they've received reports of a sexual predator burglarizing homes in the city.
The meeting will take place in the Lake Dallas Community Room at 212 Main St., according to a press release from the department. The event will be treated as an open forum where residents can discuss all safety concerns. But Lake Dallas police Lt. Vikki Chandler said the discussion will focus on the recent sexual-related offenses.
The unidentified man has been accused of exposing himself, stealing women's underwear and attempting to sexually assault a woman in her apartment, all between Feb. 28 and Sept. 27, according to police.
The incidents have all occurred in the Ashleye Village Apartments, 155 W. Overly Drive, and the nearby Lake Haven Estates mobile home park at 201 N. Shady Shores Road, police said.
"There's so many cases that weren't even reported, and we just want to educate [residents]," Chandler said.
Lake Dallas police have gathered a detailed suspect description from witnesses and victims.
Investigators are looking for a black man, possibly in his early 20s, with a thin build, short hair, a skull tattoo inside his left forearm and unknown cursive lettering tattooed on his right forearm. He has a thin mustache and goatee.
The skull tattoo depicts a skull with a knife going through it, Chandler said.
Police said he's known to wear a tight-fitting black hoodie and red Nike shoes. Two witnesses said the man asked them for a cigarette before burglarizing the homes, and he introduces himself as "Brandon" or "B," police said.
Still images from security camera footage and drawings of the suspect are not available, Chandler said.
Denton police arrest twins after fight
Johnavon and Jadonavon Williams were arrested Tuesday after the 25-year-old twins got into a fight in the Fry Street area, according to police.
Johnavon Williams, who police listed as the victim in the assault, was arrested on active warrants, while Jadonavon Williams was arrested on a charge of assault causing bodily injury.
Police responded to the fight outside Jimmy John's in the 100 block of Avenue A near the University of North Texas campus at 12:17 a.m., the report said.
Witnesses initially said that three men were fighting in the area, but police determined the third person wasn't involved.
Police said Jadonavon Williams was the aggressor. Johnavon Williams told officers he "took a swing at him," according to department spokesman Bryan Cose.
Despite the fact that Johnavon Williams didn't want to press charges, Denton police took them both to Denton City Jail.
They arrested Johnavon Williams on seven active warrants from agencies throughout Denton County. He had two Denton police warrants for driving with an invalid license and speeding, two Denton County Justice of the Peace warrants for driving with an invalid license and failure to appear, and two Highland Village police warrants for speeding and failure to appear.
He also had a warrant out of The Colony for possession of a controlled substance.
400 block of Audra Lane — A resident who was being evicted from the Mack Park Apartments recently left her water running and flooded her apartment, police said.

It's unclear whether police located the resident on Monday, but no arrests were made.
