Marianna Sexual Assault

Authorities are warning women to make sure their windows and doors are locked. That's because for the second time in less than a month, a masked man attacked a young woman in a Marianna neighborhood.

A similar incident took place two-blocks away on August 25.

In the latest incident, the suspect broke into the home and attacked the victim as she slept.

He tore off her clothes and beat her before she was able to escape to a neighbor's house.

The suspect was wearing a mask, but is described as a white male, five-feet-eight-inches tall with brown hair.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call the Jackson County Crimestoppers at 850-526-5000.
