Florence Police have charged a man in the Summit Ridge break-in.

Mitchell Blake Terry, 31, is charged with burglary and sexual assault.

Police said a Shoals woman was assaulted inside her apartment at Summit Ridge near the UNA campus on Monday, September 17.

It is unclear if he is connected to the other attacks that happened earlier this year within a five mile radius of each other.

Terry was just released from prison in the past 12 months. His priors include burglary in 2009 and 2010, theft in 2007, resisting arrest and reckless endangerment in 2006, breaking and entering a vehicle in 2005.
