S.C. Man Wanted After Ridgeway Minor Assaulted

An arrest warrant has been issued for an Eastover man after he allegedly fondled a 13-year-old Ridgeway girl in her bedroom on Nov. 9.

According to an incident report from the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office, 37-year-old Joseph Anthony Moye of Hezekiah Road in Eastover was a guest in the S. Dogwood Ave. home on Nov. 9 when, at approximately 1:18 a.m., he entered the bedroom of a 13-year-old girl living there. While the girl was in her bed, Moye reportedly pulled down her pants and began fondling her. The girl screamed, alerting family members. A friend of the suspect, a 35-year-old man living in the home, removed Moye from the home before Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene.

Investigators later contacted the 35-year-old friend of the suspect and advised him to bring Moye in to the Sheriff’s Office for questioning, but the friend reported that Moye had fled and was on the run. Moye is wanted on a charge of criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
