A 36-year-old county man was arrested Thursday after allegedly breaking into a Westville home and attempting to sexually assault a woman.

Timothy James McCain, of Westville, has been charged with first-degree burglary and first-degree attempted criminal sexual assault, according to Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews. He remained at the Kershaw County Detention Center Friday.

McCain used a step ladder to reach a window which he broke out to gain entry into the house, Matthews aid. A woman in the home heard the noise, the sheriff said, and went to investigate. McCain allegedly attacked the woman, throwing her on a bed and placing a pillowcase over her head. The woman fought back McCain, who ran away from the scene, Matthews said.

Responding Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies called in the bloodhound team, Matthews reported, and McCain was found approximately 30 minutes later hiding – unknown by its occupants -- in another home.

Matthews said McCain is a “deadbeat dad” with more than $35,000 owed in back child support for which he is wanted on a Family Court bench warrant in Kershaw County. In addition, Matthews said McCain is wanted on a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office warrant for a criminal domestic violence charge. McCain has been arrested and convicted for strong armed robbery, failure to stop for blue lights, driving under the influence and driving under suspension.
