Arrest Made In Fayette County Sexual Assual

An anonymous tip helped deputies find a suspect accused of sexually assaulting a woman who was jogging on a popular trail in Fayette County Saturday evening. The woman told police she was jogging on the Rails to Trails exercise area in Oak HIll when a man attacked her from behind, dragged her into a wooded area, tied her up, and sexually assaulted her. There are reports he planned to return to kill her, but somehow she got free and ran to a nearby house for help. The anonymous tip led officers to the Briarwood Trailer Park, where 47-year old Thomas Gene Carter Jr. was arrested.
