According to deputies, the victim was sitting in a chair outside her home when a black male, identified as Jacques Fields, 34, who was not known to her, approached and offered her money to have sex with him.  The victim declined and told the man to leave multiple times. The man refused to leave and started advancing towards the victim, the report stated. 

Deputies said the victim feared for her life and went inside the home, where her three grandchildren were sleeping, to search for a weapon. Officials said when Fields walked up to the front door of the victim's home, the victim then exited her home to confront him. 

Fields forcefully grabbed the woman's breasts, officials said, and the victim punched the subject in the head and screamed for help, causing Fields to flee the area. 

The incident happened around 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning. 

Deputies found Fields walking a short distance from the victim's home. 

He was arrested and charged with one count of lewd and lascivious battery of an elderly/disabled adult and one count of felony battery. 

Fields is listed as a register sexual offender resulting from a 2005 sexual battery conviction.
