11 days later, suspect still on the loose


BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- The Brunswick County District Attorney's Office promised a victim her alleged attacker would be arrested the same day he was indicted. Eleven days later, the Sheriff's Office has had no luck finding him.

Gary Jones is charged with assault on a female and assault by strangulation. Brunswick County Assistant DA Erin Holden dismissed the charges during a probable cause hearing two weeks ago, which let Jones out of jail. Then a Brunswick County grand jury indicted Jones July 19.

The alleged victim says she's upset with the way the DA's office handled the case and is concerned because deputies cannot find Jones.
