AUSTIN (KXAN) – A reward of up to $3,000 is being offered for information about a violent sex offender who is now wanted for a parole violation and failure to comply with his sex offender registration.
Robert Chrismon’s criminal history includes aggravated rape, aggravated assault, kidnapping and escape.
The 51-year-old was sentenced to 55 years in prison in 1981 for the kidnapping and aggravated rape of a teenager. Ten more years were tacked on for trying to stab a Corpus Christi police officer during an arrest.
Five years later, Chrismon and three other inmates escaped from prison after overpowering a guard and fleeing on horseback. He was captured a short time later and five more years were added to his prison term.
He was paroled in July 2012 and fled the San Antonio area. A warrant for his arrest was issued later that year.
Chrismon has a tattoo of a scorpion on upper right arm, a cut scar on the right side of his chest, and cut scars on both wrists. He is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds.
He has ties to San Antonio and has been known to work as a laborer.
