Trenton – The suspect in a Tuesday afternoon assault in Trenton remained on the loose as of late Thursday.
The Fannin County Sheriff's office did not have a suspect, only a report by resident that someone had broken into her home that day and committed the offense. She was reportedly struck from behind and did not see the man, therefore was unable to provide a description.
The victim was sent to Hunt Regional Medical Center in Greenville where she was treated and released.
