Newberry County, SC (WLTX) - Newberry County deputies are trying to find a man they say has been trying to stop women on the road by telling them they have a flat tire.
Officers say the suspect appears to be targeting women who are traveling alone. Officers say he tries to flag them down while they are driving in an attempt to get them to pull over.
According to officers, the first case took place last week on Highway 219. The woman did not stop at that point, but did later find a Walmart where she checked her tires and realized they were okay.
Thursday, the man pulled up near a woman driving on Adelaide Street, rolled down his window, and got her to stop. When she rolled down her window, he reportedly told her that she had a flat tire, and that he would help her change it. The woman told the man she would check it when she got to school, then drove away.
