Jasper Lee Tisdale - Repeat Sex Offender

Police arrested a Miami man who they claim is connected to three separate sexual assault incidents.

Miami-Dade Police Department said Jasper Lee Tisdale robbed and sexually assaulted three women from September to November. Police said that on Sept. 1, Tisdale broke into a woman’s home while she was sleeping in her bedroom. He placed a knife to the woman’s throat and demanded money. The victim, who does not speak English, did not understand the subject, and began to scream, police said. Tisdale fled the residence on foot.

Tisdale sexually assaulted two other women in October while they were walking in their apartment complex. Tisdale slapped the women before sexually assaulting them, police said.

On Nov. 1, Tisdale broke into another woman’s house and sexually assaulted her at knifepoint while she was sleeping.

Police said they were able to pinpoint Tisdale through investigative leads.

Tisdale admitted to committing the robberies and sexual assaults, police said.
He was charged with armed sexual battery, attempted sexual battery, sexual battery, armed home invasion robbery, armed occupied burglary and battery on the elderly. Tisdale’s criminal history includes several previous arrests in South Carolina for sexual battery, carrying concealed weapons, and multiple assault and battery charges, police said.
Police continue to investigate whether Tisdale may be responsible for other similar incidents.
