HOUSTON, Tx. -The hunt is on in Sunnyside. The National Black United Front, New Black Panther Party, various churches, Quanell X and the family of Miss Ophelia Outley are out in force.

“We`re looking for this brother and we will not stop until we find out who you are and where you are,” Quanell X exclaimed outside the victim’s home.

They're hunting for a man believed to have assaulted 95-year-old Outley inside her south Houston home.

“At this point she`s developing some type of like post traumatic stress. You know she just still goes through her head every day what went on,” says Jeanmarie Outley-Martin, the victim's Granddaughter.

And the community isn`t hunting alone. Houston Police not only provided them with this sketch, but printed out these flyers to be distributed throughout the community.

“Law enforcement has done a great job in helping us find this suspect, but the community can help them, if we do our part,” says Quanell X.

And so they go, from door to door.

“It is very important that we as people take back our community from wicked and evil people inside of our community,” says Malik Muhammad with The National Black United Front.

There`s some suspicion that the suspect`s family might be helping him hide, but community members say this guy would be smart to turn himself in to the police - and soon.

“If he get caught up here man, the laws ain`t gonna make it there quick enough. I`m just being real,” said one community member that wished not to be named.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $6,000 reward for information that leads to the suspect`s arrest. So if you know something, pick up that phone and make a difference, cause when it comes to hurting the elderly, as Quanell says, “That no snitch policy does not apply to you brother! We`re after you, we`re looking for you, and we will find you!”
