Texas Pride Disposal Collection Crew Stops Possible Kidnapping, Sexual Assault

Earlier this week in Harris County, Texas, a trash collection crew from Texas Pride Disposal came across a scene it knew wasn’t right and decided to take action before the dangerous situation got worse.

The crew scared off 22-year-old Howard Junius Dixon, who was grabbing a 19-year-old woman and trying to pull her into his Toyota sedan. Dixon fled the scene but was later arrested and charged with kidnapping and aggravated kidnapping in Harris County and sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault in Montgomery County.

Dixon is now in the Montgomery County jail with bond set at $300,000.

KTRK has more information:

Howard Junius Dixon was arrested Tuesday when a DPS trooper spotted his vehicle, which was wanted in connection with four cases across Harris and Montgomery counties, including the one that left Luz Baena battered and bruised. Wednesday, she was relieved after learning of his arrest.

"I was happy, happy, happy because that person, he's in jail. He don't do more things for a long time," said Baena.
