Local authorities are searching for a 16-year-old male wanted for assault and battery with intent to kill who managed to escape the custody of two Clarendon County Sheriffs Deputies this afternoon at the intersection of Percival Road and Screaming Eagle Road.
Authorities are looking for David A. Bennett, a white male with long stringy hair who is approximately 130 pounds and about 5 feet 8 inches tall, according to Monique Mack, spokeswoman for the Richland County Sheriffs Department, who is assisting in the search. Bennett was last seen wearing blue jeans, flip flops and a dark short-sleeved shirt.
The teen escaped at about 5:20 p.m., Mack said, and deputies have set up a perimeter around Screaming Eagle Road and Fort Jackson.
