ST. HELENA, S.C. (WCIV) – Beaufort County deputies are trying to find the man who tries to sexually assault a woman late Wednesday night on St. Helena Island.

According to deputies, the attack happened around 10 p.m. on No Mans Land Lane. Deputies found a 27-year-old woman with several cuts and bruises on her body and took her to Beaufort Memorial Hospital.

Police said the woman told them she was on MLK Boulevard when she was offered a ride by a black man in a dark vehicle. When she got in the car, the man told her to take off her clothes, the report states.

The two fought and he did remove some of her clothing, deputies reported. However, the woman was able to get the car door open. The man then pushed her out, deputies said.
