CLAYTON, Mo. – A St. Louis man remains jailed Thursday on charges he sexually assaulted a woman while giving her a ride in the county.

According to Detective Katie Exline, a spokeswoman for the Town & Country Police Department, the incident happened on the morning of Wednesday, July 14.

Town & Country officers responded to the Mason Woods Village around 10 a.m. and met with a woman who said she’d been assaulted during a car ride. The woman told police the suspect was still in the parking lot.

Investigators learned Hall knew the victim from a previous contact.
