LEXINGTON, S.C. – Lexington County deputies have arrested a man accused of sexual battery against a woman who was asleep inside a home he broke into early Monday morning.
Terrell Dawaijah Lytes, 32, is charged with first-degree burglary and first-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to arrest warrants.
“Based on information detectives have gathered during their investigation, Lytes entered a house on David Lane in Red Bank through a bedroom window,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “He then tried to sexually assault a woman who was asleep in bed with her husband.”
The woman’s husband tackled Lytes in the bedroom before Lytes ran out of the house, according to Koon.
“Deputies eventually located Lytes near the home and matched him to the identification card found inside a backpack Lytes left in the bedroom,” Koon said. “Lytes was taken into custody and transported to the Lexington County Detention Center.”
