Public’s Help Still Needed Identifying Intruder In Bradley County Sexual Assault

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Detectives continue work to identify an intruder who entered a home on Wilkinson Road where the female resident was sleeping in a bedroom.  His movements woke her and upon investigation she was attacked and sexually assaulted.

A cash reward remains in place for the right piece of information leading Bradley County Sheriff’s Office detectives to the arrest and conviction of a suspect.

Criminal Investigations Division Captain David Shoemaker said, “We received several calls in response to the media’s coverage of our investigation. We appreciate each of those who called with information on possible suspects and we have followed up on every bit of information we were given.”

For several days after the attack detectives working the case continued around the clock following up on leads.

Captain Shoemaker said the suspect received visible injuries from being bitten and scratched by the victim.  He points out the injuries should have started healing, therefore they may not be as noticeable as they were in the days following the attack on Sept. 14.

“We still need the public’s help identifying a suspect so he does not try this again.”

The suspect is described as a white male, late 30s, approximately six feet to six feet four inches tall, slender build and broad shoulders. He was wearing dark colored clothing and his face was obstructed.

Captain Shoemaker said, “The main characteristic is the injuries to his head that would have been difficult to conceal.”

Anyone with information that can help identify the suspect is asked to get in contact with the Criminal Investigations Division by calling 423 728-7336.
