HOUSTON (KHOU) – Houston police believe there could be more victims of a man who forced a teen into his vehicle and raped her while pretending to be a cop.

Michael Wayne Carter, 50, was charged with aggravated kidnapping, impersonating a peace officer and sexual assault.

A 17-year-old girl said she was in the parking lot of a grocery store in the 1000 block of Quitman when she was approached by Carter on August 9.

Carter, who was posing as a police officer, was talking on a handheld radio and flashed what appeared to be a gold badge, according to HPD. He then told the teen to get into his white Chevrolet Suburban or she would be arrested.

Once inside the vehicle, Carter drove the teen to a car wash on the corner of Studewood and East 11th Street. He then parked the SUV in a vacant stall and sexually assaulted her. Afterward, he left her at a bus stop near the intersection of Fulton and Hogan.

The victim then called police.

Results of the sexual assault kit were submitted to the national Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) that matched and identified Carter as the suspect in this case.

Investigators arrested Carter at his residence in the 1700 block of Mary on October 19 without incident. A white Chevrolet Suburban and two police scanners, that can appear to be police radios, were recovered from his home, police said.

Additional evidence obtained indicates Carter may have engaged in similar activities over the past 20 years. For this reason, HPD investigators are asking for any other potential victims to come forward. Carter is missing his left eye, however, he has been known to wear dark sunglasses to hide the fact.

Anyone who recognizes Carter is urged to contact the HPD Special Crimes Division at 713-308-1180.
