At around 11:55 p.m. on Friday, February 22, 1946, Jimmy Hollis, age 25, and his girlfriend, Mary Jeanne Larey, age 19, were attacked while parked on a secluded road known as a lovers' lane . [5] The attack happened on a lateral road off of Richmond Road, a mile north of the addition known as Beverly. According to a fourteen-page statement by Hollis, the attack happened about 50 feet (15 m) off Richmond Road on an unpaved street, about 100 yards from the last row of city homes. [6]

She managed to get up and told the assailant, "Go ahead and kill me." [8] She ran half a mile, believing she was being chased, to a Beverly residence at 805 Blanton Street, [6] where she screamed for help and banged on the front door. A car passed but did not stop when she called after it. She ran to the back of the house and woke up the owners, who then notified authorities. Bowie County Sheriff W. H. "Bill" Presley and three other officers arrived at the scene, but the attacker had already driven off. They found Hollis' pants 100 yards away from the attack.

The details of the attack were published on the front page of the Texarkana Daily News , a now-defunct evening newspaper, on Saturday, February 23, 1946, with the headline "Masked Man Beats Texarkanian and Girl". By March 9, no developments had been made, but the department continued to search for clues to the identity of the attacker. [10] The case was considered an isolated incident and further attacks were not expected. The next attack happened 28 days later on March 24.
