NORTH CHARLESTON, SC -

On July 24 at approximately 3:30 a.m. Charleston County Deputies responded to 977 Gadsdenville Road  in Awendaw, in reference to a reported burglary and assault.

When deputies arrived they met with a resident who told them the suspect, who was being held in the driveway and was naked, had broken into the residence and gone upstairs, the suspect then sat down in a chair beside the bed stating "everyone is dead". The subject then took off his shorts and asked for a drink of water.

A woman lead the suspect downstairs and was groped by the subject in the process. While the subject was downstairs the woman went next door asking for help from another family member.

The victim stated that while she was next door the subject appeared to be masturbating in the driveway.

Authorities identified the suspect as Tracy W. Perry from North Charleston.  He was held by the victim's husband until deputies arrived.

It was discovered that Perry had rummaged through several vehicles on the property before breaking into the home however nothing of value was noted to have been taken.

Perry appeared confused and disoriented as deputies spoke to him uttering in made up languages and providing differing names and dates of birth.

Due to his present mental state Perry was taken into protective custody and transported for an evaluation. At this time criminal charges are pending the results of the evaluation.
