Police search for man after house break-in

York County authorities are looking for a man whom they say broke into a Fort Mill home earlier this month and struggled with a 15-year-old girl who was inside the residence.

The girl was home alone when a man broke into a house on Beacon Knoll Lane in the Bailiwyck subdivision around 11:30 a.m. June 13, according to the York County Sheriff's Office.

The girl told police that she struggled with the intruder and stabbed him in the neck with a fork, according to a press release issued by the sheriff's office Thursday.

The suspect threatened to stab the teen and left with watches and jewelry, the release states.

The sheriff's office released a description of the suspect Thursday. The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20s to mid-30s, 5-feet, 8-inches to 5-feet, 11-inches tall and a very stocky build.

The suspect had a prominent gap between his front, upper teeth and his teeth were stained yellow, the release states. He fled in an older-model white Lexus with tinted windows and a rear spoiler.

If you have information in the case, call the sheriff's office at 803-628-3059, or contact Crime Stoppers, at 877-409-4321.
