Carlos Alberto Bustos

HOUSTON - Houston police are searching for a 28-year-old man suspected in as many as four sexual assault cases.

Carlos Alberto Bustos was arrested in June after police said he raped a woman he met at the Breakers nightclub in southwest Houston in November 2011. The victim told police Bustos offered her a ride home but choked her and beat her once she was in his truck before sexually assaulting her.

Bustos was released on $10,000 bond to await trial, but last week a woman visiting Houston from Tennessee told police Bustos raped her last May.

"Same general area of town, same description. Same descriptors on his truck," said Assistant Harris County District Attorney Lacy Johnson. "Took us a little bit longer to get a hold of that complainant, but once we did, with the help of law enforcement in Tennessee, she also identified him from a photo lineup."

So far, Bustos has been charged in two cases. Court records show he is suspected in two others.
