Detectives Pursuing Leads in Sexual Assault In Bradley County

Monday, September 16, 2013

Bradley County detectives are seeking information from the public regarding Friday night’s sexual assault of a woman by a man who entered her home on Wilkinson Road as she slept.

The victim was awakened by a noise in another room and upon investigation she was attacked by the male suspect.

Criminal Investigations Division Captain David Shoemaker said the victim described the male as white, approximately six to six feet, four inches, with a slender build and broad shoulders. He was wearing dark-colored clothing and his face was obstructed from view. Captain Shoemaker said the victim resisted the attacker and managed to inflict noticeable injuries to the suspect in the form of bite marks and scratches.

“We are vigorously pursing the assailant and will continue working around the clock checking leads that were developed during the weekend.  The suspect’s DNA was collected from the scene of the crime and has been submitted to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for analysis,” Captain Shoemaker said.

“We are asking for anyone who knows of a male of the same size and build who in the last few days incurred injuries of the nature described above to contact the criminal investigations tip line at 423 728-7336.”

The detective said a reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the assailant.

Sheriff Hammond is exactly correct on the Muslims in Tennessee.  He sees with clear eyes the problem with the Muslims in our state and country.  They do want to take over Tennessee.  Our politicians are selling us down the river and allowing the trouble makers to dig in like tics and suck out the life's blood of our Constitution and take us over.  They ...

Roy Exum: The Barners Trounce Who?

There is a website known as Grammarly that just completed a profound study.

Then they fed them into the company’s huge algorithm computer and checked each fan base for punctuation, ... (click for more)

Pugh, Smith Lead Sale Creek Past East Ridge, 3-0

If Sale Creek’s Bailey Pugh and Ariana Smith were a comedy act, Pugh would be Ed McMahan and Smith would play Johnny Carson. On the court, Pugh sets up Smith, who finishes things with killer punch lines. That was certainly the case Tuesday at East Ridge High School where the visiting Lady Panthers rolled over the Lady Pioneers, 3-0, with game scores of 25-16, 25-8 and ... (click for more)
