JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The search is underway for the man wanted in connection with the attempted sexual assault of an elderly Jackson woman.

Joshua Young was freed on bond, but violated the terms of release. Now the victim's family is outraged he's back on the streets.

"Our family just wants to be at peace, and we want him to be where he needs to be, behind bars," said the victim's daughter, who does not want to be identified.

She said her 67-year-old mother, the attempted rape and burglary victim, can no longer sit on her front porch. The Holland Avenue resident is fearful the neighbor, who she said broke into her home, may return.

Young, a Jackson City employee, was released on a $20,000.00 without notification to the family from police.

"He violated his bond by reaching out to my nephew on Snapchat and although he didn't say anything he just basically made his presence, and let us know that he was out," said the victim's daughter.

After more than 30 years in the neighborhood the elderly victim wants to leave.

"She said she heard a lot of commotion from her side door which that was the door he broke in," said the family member. "She went to look to see what the noise was coming from. She informed me that he was standing there basically with his pants down looking at her".

"We are actively seeking him to bring him back before a judge," said Jackson Police Commander Tyree Jones.

On Tuesday, Jackson police returned to Young's home in search of him. Young posted bond September 13 and was ordered by the judge not to contact the victim or her family.

"We are still putting a case together to present to the Hinds County Grand Jury to have him possibly indicted for this incident. It doesn't stop just because he was been released on bond," said Commander Jones.

"She no longer wants to be here because he's out wandering. Nobody knows where he's at," said the frustrated daughter.

If you know where Joshua Young is contact the Jackson Police Department at 601-960-1234.
