Wendell Turner, Director of Statesboro Public Safety, said bout 7:45 Sunday morning officers responded to a residence at 5 North Zetterower about a report of a burglary and attempted sexual assault.
The victim told police she was attacked by an assailant who had entered her home. When police arrived they found evidence of a forced entry but no items appeared to be missing. Turner said the unidentified woman had no apparent physical injuries as a result of the incident.
The suspect was described as a black male, 5’6” to 5’10” tall, slender build, with blue jeans and possibly blue in color do-rag.
Two days earlier, Friday August 16, police responded to the same location in reference to a complaint about graffiti on the side of the building. The Statesboro Police Department Investigations Bureau doesn’t think the cases are related at this time.
This case is currently under investigation and a reward is being offered for information in this case.
