SUMTER COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - In the early morning on August 5, the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office responded to reports of someone walking around Oakcrest Road assaulting individuals.

One victim reported the 21-year-old Jabar Zuell forced his way into her home and attempted to choke her.

The victim then said she armed herself and ran towards a neighbor’s house to lure Zuell away from her children. He reportedly then attempted to choke and assault the neighbor.

Deputies say Zuell also kicked in the door at a third residence, but no one was home at the time.

Zuell was found in the middle of the street and taken to a local hospital and later released.

He is currently at the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center pending an appearance in circuit court after his bond was denied.

Zuell is being charged with assault and battery and burglary.
