LAKE COUNTY, S.C. — An off-duty police officer in South Carolina is being credited with helping arrest a man wanted in Lake County for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl last year, authorities said Thursday.
Jimmy L. Lawrence, 23, of north suburban Antioch was arrested Wednesday in Marlboro County, S.C., after an officer who was trick-or-treating with his daughter recognized Lawrence from a police bulletin, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Department. The officer saw Lawrence following children into a business and called authorities, police said.
