NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (TIM RENAUD, WTAT-TV) — North Charleston police are actively looking for a man accused of assaulting family members inside an apartment off Greenridge Road in North Charleston Monday afternoon.
The incident happened around 3:00 p.m. at Jameson Park Apartments.
Officers say the suspect ran out of the apartment right after the assaults took place and that is when the manhunt began.
Right now we are unsure just how many people were assaulted in the apartment or the severity of the assaults, but a Chaplin and EMS were called to the scene.
Fire and a mobile command unit were also set up in the parking lot of that apartment complex, and police began showing an image of the man in question to nearby residents.
