Man Wanted for Sexual Assault Arrested; Son Found Safe
Thursday, June 2, 2011

Kershaw County, SC (WLTX) -- Deputies says they have found a a 35-year-old man wanted for sexual assault and his son.

Investigators with the Kershaw County Sheriff's Department say Micque Burnell Wood of Opal Lane in Lugoff was taken into custody just after 10 a.m. Thursday. Officers say a short time later, they found seven-year-old son Jaylen Wood. Officers say Jaylen Wood was at a home by himself, but was safe.

Deputies intend to charge Micque Wood with kidnapping/abduction and sexual assault.

While investigators did find Micque, they say the boy was not with him.

Investigators say sometime between 11 p.m. Wednesday and 2 a.m. Thursday, Micque Wood sexually assaulted the female victim. Deputies say the victim walked into a camper used by Micque Wood and the two got into an argument. The 35-year-old Wood yelled at the victim, and was "accusing her of things," according to the incident report.

That's when deputies say the man took the woman outside of the residence, which is a 20-foot-camper. Outside, investigators say the man began assaulting the woman, as two other men watched the attack.

Officials say neither witness tried to help the victim, even though authorities say she pleaded with them to help her and for the man to stop hurting her.

"She thought the subject was going to kill her," reads the report. That's when deputies say the 35-year-old "pulled the victim back inside the residence," where investigators say he sexually assaulted her as he kept his hands around the woman's mouth and throat.

Deputies say the man told the woman he was going to kill her as punishment.

After the attack, deputies say the man apologized to the woman, saying that he was afraid he would get into trouble. That's when the victim drove herself to the Kershaw County Medical Center.

Officials say the woman had several injuries around her face and head.
