BENNETTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) – The Marlboro County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating a suspect who allegedly grabbed a woman and struggled with her in her home, and then ran when he saw her dog.

MCSO deputies responded to Quick Acres Road Friday in response to an assault. The victim told police she was at home when a man approached her door, and when she opened the door, he grabbed her and a brief struggle ensued. The victim's dog came out of the other room and the man ran out of the house.

MCSO had a forensic artist from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division produce a composite forensic drawing. She described the suspect as a white man in his 40's or 50's with scars and acne on his face, missing teeth, and wearing a camo jacket with a hooded sweatshirt underneath. He was also wearing black cargo pants with keys hanging off the belt, and had a tattoo on his right hand.

The woman told the sheriff's office that she was also the victim of a larceny a few days earlier, but investigators have not linked the two cases.

The MCSO is offering a reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
