Marianna Prowler Suspect

Jackson County sheriff's deputies have arrested a suspected prowler.

Right now, 21-year-old Richard Kelley of Marianna is only charged with one count of attempted burglary.

On Sunday night, a man in the Dogwood Heights neighborhood near Marianna confronted a peeping tom who was trying to hide in some bushes outside his home.

The man struck the suspect several times in the face and head with a flashlight before the intruder got away.

Sheriff John McDaniel says Kelley became a marked man, and the cuts and bruises led to his arrest.

Sheriff McDaniel says other charges could be filed against Kelley.

Three Marianna women were attacked by a prowler in August and September but managed to fight-off or frighten the suspect away.
