“Based on our review of surveillance video and witness statements, Monje targeted a woman and followed her to her vehicle as she left a store during the afternoon of Nov. 8,” said Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon. “Monje touches her without consent and then runs away.”

A community tip helped deputies identify Monje after the Sheriff’s Department posted a portion of the surveillance video on social media.

Monje was arrested at this home, Tuesday. He was being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
