Deputies looking for man wanted in Lexington County home invasion

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Lexington County sheriff's detectives are asking for help to identify a man who was armed with a handgun and entered a home on West Lake Drive Wednesday morning.

Deputies were told that the man was African-American in his mid-20s, was between 5'10" and 6', weighing about 170 pounds and had a scar on the right side of his face. They said the man was wearing a mask that partially covered his face, was wearing blue jeans, a brown long-sleeve shirt and cargo boots.
