Aiken County authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding a Beech Island man for sexual assault charges on a 13-year-old girl.
Dayzon Nakarr Padgett, 23, has previously been convicted of crimes against another 13-year-old girl. Investigators say he’s back at it.
Padgett is wanted for sexual exploitation of a minor and four counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor. The charges stem from an investigation that began on July 3. Padgett is described as a Black male, 5’8” tall, approximately 140 pounds, brown eyes and brown hair.
