Tallahassee, Florida - October 4, 2011 -

Tallahassee police officers arrested a man for attempted sexual battery on October 3, 2011. The victim reported the incident to TPD investigators on September 5, 2011 and subsequent investigation led to the suspect’s arrest.

In the early morning hours of September 05, 2011 the victim reported she was crossing the parking lot at 1505 West Tharpe Street when she dropped her purse. A male approached her and bent down, as if to assist her with picking up her purse, but instead put a knife to her throat and dragged her to an unlit area behind the apartment

While the victim was being dragged she saw a vehicle drive by and screamed for help. The arrestee continued to drag her behind the building and began to attempt to sexually batter the victim. Moments later several witnesses, who heard the victim scream for help, appeared and scared off the arrestee. The victim suffered several
lacerations to her hands while trying to fight off her attacker.

“Because of the quick thinking by the victim and several citizens, who were willing to come forward to help, this crime was stopped before it happened. I am proud to be a member of a community where people are not afraid to help a fellow citizen” said Chief Dennis Jones.
