Horry County police are investigating a sexual assault that happened earlier this month at the Tanger Outlets on Kings Road, according to public records.

Few details have been released about the incident. A heavily redacted police report was provided Monday afternoon. The report states that the assault happened just before 5 p.m. on June 8. The victim’s mother contacted police after her daughter called her about the assault.

The victim is an adult female. No information about the suspect is included in the report.

“This remains an active investigation and we are not able to provide any further information at this time,” county spokeswoman Kelly Moore said via email.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact police at 843-248-1520.
