Smile for the camera…
A Forest Circle man reported that someone stole a GPS device from his unlocked car parked in his driveway.
Officers could not lift fingerprints from the victim’s vehicle. However, a neighbor provided law enforcement with a DVD of footage taken from a security camera on the neighbor’s property that clearly shows two individuals attempting to break into vehicles on the complainant’s property and a property across the street.
One of the subjects apparently looked directly at the camera, thus providing law enforcement very clear and identifiable footage of his face.
Attempted sexual assault
A North Charleston woman reported that she was sexually assaulted by a man she said she was spending time with in exchange for money.
She said she had made it clear that she was not going to have sex with the man.
However, at some point during the evening, he drove to a dirt road somewhere in the Knightsville area of Dorchester County, pulled over, and forcibly assaulted her.
She said she does not know the man’s name but does have his cell phone number and license plate number. She said she met him through an online dating site.
A Summerville woman reported that her neighbor reported seeing an unknown male subject enter her house via the front door, then come running out a few moments later.
The complainant said she was taking a shower with the bathroom door closed and her children were in a back room sleeping at the time the man allegedly entered her house. She said when she got out of the shower she noticed that the bathroom door was open but didn’t think anything of it.
The front door was closed and unlocked and she did not notice any items moved, missing, or otherwise in disarray, she said.
The neighbor reported seeing a white male with a low haircut wearing a blue shirt approach the door, peek inside, enter the home, and then run back out the front door a few minutes later.
The neighbor also reported hearing the complainant’s dogs barking inside the home.
