CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston Police say accused rapist Corrie Brown turned himself in last night after seeing his case profiled on Live 5 News.

Brown, 41 Brown is wanted on a charge of criminal sexual conduct first degree in connection with a sexual assault on King Street in December, 2008.

"Brown accosted a young female, threw her to the ground, held her down, threatened her life if she screamed or called for help and forcibly raped her," said Charleston Police Cpl. Fred Bowie.

Police say the woman was walking alone and never had a chance.

"She had to be terrified and the emotional scars, the psychological scars will stay with this person for a long, long time," said Bowie. "This happened at around 1:30 in the morning and when your traveling alone at 1:30 in the morning, there's always trouble out there."

Police identified brown as their suspect through forensics, and before the airing, had had a very hard time finding him.

"He's definitely a dangerous individual," warned Bowie. "He's apt to do something like this again. We don't think necessarily he'll come to the same area, but certainly he has a history of this kind of thing."

Brown stands 5'11" and weighs 205 lbs.
