Help Sought Identifying Columbia County Suspect

Columbia County authorities need help identifying a man who is wanted in connection with an attack earlier this month in the parking lot of the Evans neighborhood Walmart store on Fury’s Ferry Road.

According to an incident report, the 19 year old victim told authorities he was sitting in his vehicle last Tuesday while waiting for some pedestrians in the crosswalk when a man suddenly reached in his car, grabbed him by the throat and threatened him.  The victim said the two exchanged punches before the assailant threatened to “blow his brains out.”

The victim told investigators he didn’t know the assailant, though the mahn told him he lived in the neighborhood.

A surveillance picture of the suspect has been released in hopes someone will recognize the man and notify authorities.


If anyone can help identify or has contact with the pictured subject, please contact the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office immediately.
