Suspect involved in 2011 assault case still at large

March 6, 2014


West Point Police Department investigators always keep their ears to the ground for new leads in old cases.
At about 2:28 a.m. June 5, 2011, officers responded to a call made by a patient at the West Point North Mississippi Medical Center, who told officers that he was the victim of an assault.
The victim, according to West Point Chief of Investigations Albert Lee, told police that he was assaulted at the American Legion Post No. 212 Hutt. According to the incident report, the victim told police that a neighbor took him to the hospital for treatment.
Lee said the victim, possibly due to the injuries suffered in the alleged assault, was unable to give thorough information on the attacker.
The victim, according to Lee, had “multiple fractures to the face” from the alleged attack.
It is unknown whether anything was stolen from the victim.
At about 3:48 p.m. two days later, WPPD officers were dispatched to S&W Mini-Storage located at 224 Bugg St. The owner of one of the storage units, Lee said, reported to responding officers that her unit had been broken into.
Lee said the unit owner reported stolen a 42-inch television (model and brand unknown), a chair as well as assorted clothing, pots and pans. The television, according to the unit owner, was valued at approximately $550 and the chair’s estimated worth was about $200. The value of the other items stolen was not available.
Lee said the alleged burglar forced the lock off the storage unit for entry.
