Good morning. I would like to introduce myself. My name is Shawn Scott. I am a Detective with the Round Rock Police Department. I would like to take this time to address the email that seems to be circulating through Round Rock.
First, the incident involving Sue Livingston has been reported to Round
Second, I would like to clarify the incident that occurred at the Salt Grass restaurant in Round Rock. This incident occurred last year, almost four months ago (not last week). The victim in this incident was not sexually assaulted (or raped as the email stated) nor was the suspect armed. I would like to reiterate that I am not at all minimizing this type of incident. I just wanted to clarify the email. Currently, we have no reason to believe the incident at Salt Grass and the report involving Sue Livingston are related.
Third, I want to let the citizens of Round Rock know that we do NOT have a rash of carjackings in our city. The incident involving Sue Livingston is the first one of this sort reported. I would further add that I am not aware of any rash of carjackings in our surrounding area. We are checking with Temple P.D. for clarification of information printed in the email regarding the incident there. I have contacted the Temple victim regarding the incident there and have learned that no car jacking occurred.
The information contained in the "this is not a joke email" did not come from Round Rock P.D. as indicated. Furthermore, Round Rock P.D. is not currently aware of any armed gang of black males committing car jackings in our city.
Last, I want to reassure the citizens of Round Rock that you live in a safe community. I would encourage everyone to be cautious and aware of your surroundings at all times. Sue Livingston should be commended for her bravery and quick actions to remove herself from harms way.
Please do not hesitate to report suspicious activity to Police.
Thank you for your time and please forward this email to others.
