Reward Offered in Kidnapping

A $5,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect wanted in a Low Country kidnapping case. Pictured here is a sketch of the suspect deputies say attacked a woman in the parking lot of a business on Robert Smalls Parkway in Beaufort on June 24.

The man is accused of kidnapping the woman in her SUV, then sexually attacking her before letting her out on Scipio Road. Officers from the Port Royal Police Department spotted the vehicle minutes later, but the suspect got out and ran into a mobile home park where he escaped.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect or knows anything about where he can be found can call the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office at 843.524.2777 or Beaufort County CrimeStoppers at 800.525.7175.
