GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Some people in Goose Creek are going above and beyond to help a neighbor who was attacked last month.

The woman was assaulted inside her Goose Creek home by her ex-boyfriend. On Sunday, her neighbors came together to do what they can to help her. They did yard work around her house Sunday afternoon.

The woman still has a broken knee cap so it is hard for her to get around.

Neighbors talked about the importance of helping out a neighbor in need.

"We just got to talking, we figured why not try to help her," said neighbor John Kirkpatrick. "I would like to think that every street would be that way."

The suspect, Steven Lee Morgan, allegedly beat the victim and sexually assaulted. He was arrested and is now facing multiple charges, including attempted murder.
