A possible Cox Cable impersonator sexually assaulted a woman in her home on Dec. 27.
At this time, it is believed that the suspect was impersonating a Cox Cable employee to gain entrance into a woman’s home, however, it is not really known if the suspect is an impersonator or not.
Since he had a Cox shirt on, he could be a former or even current employee.
The woman was sexually assaulted in her home, located near West Sahara Avenue and South Durango Drive after the man knocked and she opened her door.
After the assault the man left and the woman called police.
As is common with these types of predators, the suspect may have attempted to gain entrance in another woman’s home.
After being shown a police sketch of the suspect, an unidentified woman told 13 Action News that a man knocked on her door and wanted to come in, claiming that he was a cable employee. When she told him that she did not have television in the home, he said that there was a promotion going on and tried to convince her to open the door but she refused.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his early 20’s, He is approximately 5’10” tall, has brown hair and eyes and is of a muscular build. He was wearing a short-sleeved shirt with the word Cox on the left side.
Cox is, of course, vehemently denying that the sexual assault suspect works for them.
It’s important to note that the technicians that perform field work for Cox Cable and Cox Internet and are not actually employees of Cox. They are independent contractors.
Although, Cox claims that they undergo a rigorous security check, they are simply not employees of Cox and it is unknown how much control Cox actually has over these independent contractors.
When a customer schedules an appointment with Cox, they let the customer know that the employee will call them because they do not even know the name of the technician that is going to show up.
Cox does strive to have some controls in place by having the technician call first before arriving at the home and people, not just woman, should not open their door, not even a crack, if they are not expecting a technician.
