Crosby woman names assailant

David Carl Wormington

CROSBY — A woman on August 30 heroically identified her neighbor as the man that sexually assaulted her in her home.

A man wearing a ski mask, forced open a woman’s back door and assaulted her at gunpoint late Monday night. The 24 year old woman indicated she had been asleep when the entry was made in the 17,000 block of Adlong Johnson Rd.

Early Tuesday morning, at about 12:22 a.m., the 24 year old woman reported to Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies that her neighbor, David Carl Wormington, 45, was the assailant.

Although the assailant wore a ski mask, she stated she recognized her neighbor’s voice and her neighbor had a slim build, the same as her attacker.

Deputies paid Wormington a visit and the victim was later able to identify a ski mask, the clothing that had been worn by her attacker and the pistol held during the assault as the same.

Wormington had been held at Harris County Jail on $30,000 bond. At the time of his arrest, Wormington had two outstanding warrants on traffic offenses.
