Accused of beating family

Charles Sweat

CLARENDON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - This week, the Clarendon County Sheriff's Office gave WIS News 10 a call and wanted us to put this suspect up on the wall because they think you might be able to spot him.

He's 32-year-old Charles Sweat from Manning. Sweat is accused of beating up his wife, step-daughter and five-year-old son in 2004. His wife divorced him after that, but a year later officials say he returned to burn her face with an iron and push her head through a window.

Sweat bonded out of jail, but he still hasn't gone to trial because deputies haven't been able to find him for two years.

Investigators say he was spotted in Sumter a couple weeks ago and they hope to catch him soon.
