Aiken authorities seek sex assault suspect
Thursday, March 17, 2011

AIKEN COUNTY, SC - The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is asking for help finding a man they say sexually assaulted two girls for more than seven years -- including at least one attack that occurred at knife-point.

According to a news release, Harold Bennon Cartwright III (pictured right), 45, last known to live in the 600 block of Winter Place Drive in Trenton, S.C., is wanted in connection with the assaults on girls younger than 16.

The office holds 12 warrants for his arrest, for offenses including criminal sexual conduct with a minor and eight counts of lewd act on a child. He is considered dangerous, according to a bulletin on the sheriff's Web site.

The warrants allege he inappropriately touched, performed sexual acts on or had intercourse with the girls in separate incidents between Oct. 17, 2003, and Feb. 7, 2011, in North Augusta, Clearwater and Trenton.

One warrant says that between Oct. 16, 2006, and Oct. 17, 2007, Cartwright pushed a victim onto a couch, put a knife to her throat and stomach, and forced her to have sex with him in a North Augusta home.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's office at (800) 922-9709 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 274-6372.
