Neshoba County authorities are asking for the public's help to track down an assault suspect.

A woman was admitted to the hospital with two stab wounds Friday, then told authorities her attacker was at her home in Tucker.

When authorities arrived, the house was on fire.

Deputies describe the suspect as a tall, slender, white male with blond hair.

The victim has been released from the hospital.

    With all the tweakers in Tucker, I know somebody saw or have seen the guy and is not talking to the law. UNLESS this was a dope trade that went wrong......

    If he guy had been black it would have been all over the news. Nancy Grace might even have showed up. Now this rapist is white and Neshoba's finest take the attitide of ahh he is just a good ol boy looking to have a little fun and things got out of hand.

    I also feel that their has NOT been enough warning about this matter!!!!! I mean seriously a woman was stabbed could have been RAPED and even MURDERDED and it doesn't come out in the news until Tuesday!!!!!! I guest Philadelphia's finest are doing their job just as they usually do by NOT informing the PUBLIC!!!!!!!!!!!

      a Philadelphia woman was attacked in her home by a man who stabbed her, beat her and tried to rape her. She fought him off and managed to get away, drove her naked self to the hospital. the man then burned her house to the ground and got away on foot! He has not been caught yet and we here in Philly have heard nothing from our law enforcement or our paper! OUTRAGEOUS!!!

    Sounds like the law didn't tell the news a suspect was loose.

    I'm thinking the same thing. I "heard" about it Saturday, and kept looking in the Democrat online, and also WTOK online, and there was NOTHING...I even saw the HP cars on the side of the highway Friday about lunch, but didn't know what they were doing. but i EV.i E
