Police: Man Tried to Sexually Assualt Woman at Columbiana Centre Mall
Thursday, August 18, 2011

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia police are searching for a man they say tried to sexually assault a woman at the Columbiana Centre mall in the Harbison area Wednesday morning.

Police say the woman told them she was leaving a public restroom at the mall when the man grabbed her around the face and neck area from behind. The woman went on to say that the man attempted to fondle her underneath her skirt.

Investigators say the woman screamed and fought back, using her high heels as weapons. The woman kept screaming, and the suspect ran away.

The woman wasn't physically hurt in the incident.

Police asked a State Law Enforcement Division forensic artist to draw a sketch of what the victim says the suspect looks like. Officers are also looking to see if surveillance cameras captured an image of him.

The suspect was between the ages of 25 and 30-years-old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighs approximately 250 pounds.
