HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The Horry County Police Department is asking the public’s help in locating a 24-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl after picking her up from school, according to reports.

Enrico Devon Jones is wanted in connection with a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on September 10, according to Horry County Police.

The police report states that Jones’ girlfriend reported to police that he picked up the girl after school and said they were going to her mother’s house. Instead, they went to an unknown car wash, and he allegedly attempted to take the girl’s pants off, the report states. The girl told her grandmother that Jones did take her pants off and touch her, but the girl later told police that he just tried to take her pants off, the report states.

Police went to the school and observed Jones on surveillance camera picking up the girl at 8:16 a.m. from the main office and returning her at 9:45 a.m., according to the report.

Police describe Jones as a black male, 6-feet-2-inches tall, and 170 pounds in weight. He is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Anyone with information on Jones’ whereabouts is asked to call local law enforcement authorities or the HCPD Tip Line: 843-915-8477.
