Registered Sex Offender Shows Up Naked In Couple's Bedroom

A wanted sex offender is on the loose somewhere in South Carolina. The Lauren's County Sheriff's Office is trying to track down Thomas Andrew Pate. He allegedly showed up naked in a Clinton couple's bedroom last week. 

Pate is a registered sex offender after being convicted for aggravated sodomy in 1998. Police say the couple woke up to see the naked man standing in the doorway to their bedroom. When the man tried to punch Pate, he allegedly asked why they wanted to kill him. 

Pate fled from the home on foot and police believe he may be the suspect who stole a vehicle from a home nearby. The vehicle was found in Spartanburg County. 

Pate is described as a white male, weighing around 200 pounds and about six-feet tall. Pate faces first-degree burglary, indecent exposure, grand larceny and breach of peace charges. 

If you have information about his whereabouts, please contact the Laurens County Sheriff's Office.
