DPS is searching for a high-risk sex offender who escaped from a Houston halfway house earlier this evening.
At 6:15 p.m. Monday, 39-year-old Timothy Rosales Jr. fled the Reid Facility on Beaumont Highway, where he was under electronic monitoring.
Rosales is 5' 7" tall and weighs about 165 pounds. He has brown eyes and numerous tattoos, including a rose tattoo on the inside of his left arm.
Rosales, who has family in the Denton area, should be considered armed and dangerous. He was originally convicted of two aggravated sexual assaults in Potter County in 1987. He is now wanted on felony civil commitment and parole violation charges.
Anyone with information is asked to call their local police immediately.
