SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The Chatham County Police Department is investigating after a woman was assaulted at a housing complex on Quacco Road.

It happened around 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday at The Preserve in the 600 block of Quacco Road. According to police, the woman told detectives the man entered her apartment through an unlocked door and immediately began to attack her. She says the man left when another person who lives at the apartment entered the room.

Police say the suspect is described as a black male with short hair, a beard, and a scar under his left eye. At the time of the assault, he was wearing a red Nike shirt, khaki cargo pants, and grey slides.

Police say there is nothing to indicate the woman and the suspect knew each other.

WTOC spoke to several people who say they moved here no more than two months ago who were shocked by the details.

A woman living at The Preserve with her young daughter, who wanted to remain anonymous, said she saw police there on Wednesday but wasn’t sure what happened. After learning about the assault, she is very concerned, especially because the suspect hasn’t been arrested yet.

She says she will be getting a doorbell camera and checking her surroundings as often as possible. Her sister, Amber Mole visiting at the moment is worried for her sister and family’s safety.

“Who’s to say he’s not going to do it again and again. He needs to be caught. Kids, they’re innocent they don’t know people out here, like I said, they are crazy. I fear for them because they take kindness as what it is, kindness. They don’t know they’re in danger and that’s what scares me,” Mole said.

Anyone with information should call detectives at 912.651.4717 or through the department’s online tip form. You can also anonymously call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020.
