On September 22, 2012 at approximately 2:44 a.m., WCSO deputies responded to a call for service in the area of Deer Run in DeFuniak Springs. Upon arrival, deputies learned that an 11year old had been assaulted by Timothy Lee Brewster, 57, of DeFuniak Springs. Brewster had also threatened harm with a weapon to an adult that had confronted him.
According to information gathered from those on scene, the 11year old was asleep on the couch when the victim awoke to Timothy Brewster positioning himself in a lewd and lascivious manner. The child told him no twice and was able to get away from him. Timothy Brewster attempted to leave the residence when he was stopped by Greely Brewster. Timothy Brewster then pulled a knife on Greely Brewster and held it to his “gut”. Timothy Brewster then fled the scene.
The WCSO K-9 unit was deployed to the scene and was able to locate the suspect hiding in the woods not far from the scene.
Timothy Brewster was charged with Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon and Lewd and Lascivious Conduct. He was transported and booked into the Walton County Department of Corrections.
