A grand jury indicted a man Thursday in an attempted rape case. 

Scott R. Campbell was indicted on one charge of attempted second-degree rape based on allegations that he physically attacked a female victim on Dec. 22, 2017. 

Authorities say Campbell attempted to rape the victim by grabbing her outside her residence and pushing her into her garage.

Once inside Campbell forcibly pulled the victim's pants down as well as his own and attempted to rape her. She was able to fight Campbell off and get away by head-butting him.

    For the rest of the day, there will be more storms and showers that pop up in the afternoon. This is the new normal with the heat during the afternoon, and the extra moisture in the air. Not everyone will see rain, but if you are caught under one of these showers, you will likely see some heavy rainfall at times. Temperatures will still be hot today, especially where there is no rain. Highs will be in the lower 90s. Tonight, the rain should come to an end.
