Cleared Person of Interest in South Dallas Rape Out of Jail

Posted: Updated:

(KXAS) -- Alan Mason, the man Dallas police say is no longer a person of interest in the South Dallas rape investigation, is no longer behind bars.

The Dallas County Jail confirms Mason left jail sometime on Saturday night.

"It's probably one of the worst weeks of my life. I'm glad it's almost over," Mason said Friday from the Dallas County Jail.

The 29-year-old insurance agent was arrested at his Arlington apartment at 3 a.m. on September 6 after Dallas Police Chief David Brown named Mason as "person of interest" on Twitter.

An informant fingered Mason, but DNA tests cleared Mason and later linked 38-year-old Van Dralan Dixson to several of the sexual assaults. Dixson was arrested in Louisiana this week, he will be transferred to the Dallas County Jail at some future date.

Nine women were raped since June in the area east and south of Dallas Fair Park.

"The women are the true victims," Mason said. "I don't want to take any attention from what happened to them because that was way worse than what I'm going through."

Mason was kept in jail for an outstanding DUI probation violation, but he might never have wound up in jail for that case if not for the rape investigation.

Mason is considering a lawsuit over what happened, but he believes his job will still be waiting for him and he's hoping to get his regular life back in order.

"First step is to get out of here, go to the barbershop, get my appearance back right, visit my daughter, go to my grand mother's house, eat dinner," he said.
