Help sought in identifying MCG Hospital assault suspect

Richmond County sheriff's deputies continue to investigate the Wednesday night attack on a woman in an MCG Hospital restroom, and said he might be the same man linked to a waiting room theft on the same floor last week.


They released security camera photos that show Wednesday night's assault suspect. They also released other photos that show a May 29 theft suspect.

Investigators are asking the public's help in identifying the man pictured in the photos.

According to a statement released by sheriff's investigators, a 63-year-old woman said she was assaulted about 8:40 p.m. in a fourth floor restroom at MCG.

Her assailant was armed with a large steak knife, but fled when another person entered the restroom, authorities said.
