Different Suspect

By  | 

It appears that Wood and Washington County authorities are looking for two different suspects in connection with three sexual assaults last month.

Captain Mark King of the Wood County Sheriff's Department says they have identified and charges are pending against a suspect wanted for allegedly attacking a Fairmont woman in Wood County last month.

At this time he says it does not appear to be the same person that Washington County is looking for.

Theirs is described as 5 foot 8 inches, weighing about 250 pounds, dark haired with a beard, last scene wearing a black baseball cap, gray shorts and a yellow tank top.

He was last seen driving a small red pick-up, possibly a Ford with an Ohio license that starts C-E, with a messy cab and a silver toolbox in the rear cargo deck, traveling north on Route 7.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Washington County Sheriff's Department at 740-373-2833.
