MEDIA ADVISORY/NEWS RELEASE

The Haltom City Police Department is investigating an incident of Indecent Exposure and an incident of Assault by Contact that may be related. On Wednesday, November 6, 2019, at approximately 8:00 a.m., a seventeen year old Haltom High School student was walking northbound on Haltom Road toward the school. As she passed Northern Cross, she noticed a white male approximately 20-25 years of age with brown hair, 5’9” tall, and wearing a dark green jacket and black pants standing at the intersection. The male said hello and the female student replied hello, as well. The female continued northbound and the male walked away southbound. When the female got to the intersection at High Pointe the male was again standing at the intersection. Neither the female nor the male spoke on this occasion. The female continued northbound along the perimeter brick wall of the neighborhood. At a break in the wall, the female noticed the same male with his pants pulled down and masturbating. The female screamed at the male, and he fled westbound through the neighborhood. Upon arrival at the school, the female told the School Resource Officer about the incident.

On Thursday, November 7, 2019, at approximately 7:23 a.m., a sixteen year old female student was walking from Buffalo Ridge Park toward Haltom High School when a white male ran up to her and grabbed her breasts. The male then ran away westbound through the park. The male in this incident has a similar build to the male in the incident listed above. This is all the information available at this time.

Anyone with information on either of these two incidents is asked to contact the Haltom City Police Department at 817-222-7000 or Dispatch at 817-281-1000. The detective in the case can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Haltom City Police Department

On Thursday, February 14, 2019, at approximately 12:45 a.m., Haltom City officers were dispatched to assist Haltom City Fire Department personnel on a suspected drug overdose in the 5200 block of Mallory Dr. Upon arrival at the residence, Haltom City officers observed a 32 year old white female that was unresponsive. Believing the female had overdosed on Heroin, officers administered three doses of Narcan to the female and began CPR. The female began regaining consciousness and began breathing.

Haltom City Fire Department personnel arrived on scene and took over care for the female. The female regained consciousness, but she was still disoriented. She was transported by MedStar Ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth for further treatment.

In April of 2017, Haltom City officers were trained by Haltom City Fire Department personnel on the signs of opioid overdose and on the correct administration of Narcan. This is the first instance of a Haltom City officer administering Narcan to a patient believed to have overdosed on opioids.
