Mt. Pleasant Police Need Help to Find Suspect

Police say he dragged a young woman from the street and sexually attacked her in broad daylight Wednesday afternoon.

They are focusing their search around where the attack happened near the corner of Mill and Walnut in Mt. Pleasant.

Even though the attack was in the middle of the afternoon, neighbors say they weren’t aware anything happened until police investigated later that night.

Nobody saw or heard anything that afternoon.

Police say it may be unfortunate but women walking alone should always be on high alert no matter if it is day or night.

9&10’s Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Melvin Kimbrough spoke to neighbors and police today and have more details.
