HELOTES, Texas (AP) - A suspect in a 2012 attack at a South Texas park that left a woman dead and her girlfriend hurt has been captured near San Antonio.

The San Patricio County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday said 27-year-old David Malcom Strickland faces transfer to the jail in Sinton.

Officers on Friday arrested Strickland at an apartment in Helotes (hel-OH’-tis), 10 miles northwest of San Antonio. Strickland faces warrants for capital murder, aggravated assault with a weapon and aggravated sexual assault.

Investigators say two teens were sexually assaulted and shot at a park in Portland, near Corpus Christi, in June 2012. The victims were discovered by people passing by.

Investigators say 19-year-old Mollie Olgin of Ingleside died. An 18-year-old woman was critically injured but survived.

Further details on Strickland weren’t immediately available Saturday.
