Caryville (WVLT) - Caryville Police are looking for a suspect in a meth lab case...who may be tied to a sexual assault last week in Cove Lake.
Police say they found the remnants of a meth lab on a secluded creek bank near Asbury Park, which is adjacent to Cove Lake.
While they were cleaning it up, they say they spotted a white man with a medium build wearing dark clothes and a hoodie over his head nearby.
Police say he fled when he saw police.
Last week, we told you about the sexual assault at Cove Lake State Park.
A woman walking alone at the park says a man jumped out from behind the tree and assaulted her.
He's described as a white man wearing a hood and sunglasses. Authorities say they're not ruling out the possibility the person they're looking for in connection with the meth lab could be related to the sexual assault.
