SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -Police in Summerville are looking for 19 year old Lamar Pringle.

Pringle is wanted on a charge of obstruction of justice in connection with an October 8 incident at Somerset Apartments.

Investigators say Pringle lied to them about his knowledge of a sexual assault inside an apartment at the complex.

"He was at the house and was able to corroborate our victim's statements, however gave us a bunch of false information also," said Summerville Police Capt. Jon Rogers. "In this case, he actually gave us information that would mislead us into getting our hands back on him."

Police say it's possible Pringle may know who committed the sexual assault. "Very well may," said Rogers. "We don't know and that's why we want to get that hammered out because obviously we want to get the people responsible."

Investigators say Pringle is also wanted by authorities in Georgia for a probation violation, but believe he is still in the Lowcountry.

Pringle's last known address is in the town of Ridgeville.

He stands 5'7" and weighs about 140 lbs.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. Remember, you don't have to give your name and may earn a cash reward.
