CLOVER, S.C. — York County investigators have released a sketch of a man who attacked a 72-year-old woman inside her home.

The attacker was described as a black man with a light complexion, between 18 and 21 years old. Investigators say he may have left the area in a gold car, possibly a Mitsubishi, with clear or white taillights.

Anyone with information on the man should call York County Sheriff’s Office at 803-628-3059 or Crime Stoppers at1-877-409-4321.
