TOWN AND COUNTRY, Missouri (KMOV) – More charges have been filed against 17-year-old man after he allegedly assaulted a woman in Town and Country on Wednesday.

According to police, officers were called to the 14200 block of Willowbend Park on May 16 around 11:40 p.m. after getting reports that a man was assaulting a woman.

An officer arrived to the scene and saw Thomas and a woman on the sidewalk. Police said the woman saw the officer and began waving her arms. Thomas immediately fled the scene and got away.

Police said detectives identified Thomas as the suspect on Thursday and took him into custody.

He remains in the St. Louis County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
