The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) and Department of Social Services are looking into a case where a 31-year-old woman with mental issues claimed to have been forced to commit sex acts against her will while staying with someone who was supposed to be taking care of her. One of the alleged victim’s friends brought the matter to the KCSO’s attention.

The victim’s caregiver -- suspected of being involved in the alleged sex acts -- reported that the alleged victim’s friend attacked her the next day. The caregiver said she was walking toward Field Street in Camden when the victim’s friend started yelling at her from the passenger seat of a car. The driver of that vehicle reportedly stopped the car and the victim’s friend allegedly started to chase the caregiver on foot. The caregiver reportedly tried to flee, but the driver of the vehicle allegedly cut in front of her, pointed a shotgun out the driver’s side window and threatened to kill her.

The caregiver was able to get away and call dispatchers.

The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) reported the following other incidents during the period of June 24-July 1:

Someone called Kershaw County dispatch and falsely reported a gang-related fight consisting of 30 people at a Camden nightclub. The callers said there were guns and blood everywhere, but when deputies responded they saw no signs of a fight and members of the club’s security team said weren’t aware of any.

Two young African-American men allegedly assaulted a Lugoff man after they accused of him of stealing money. The victim crawled to a home on Shearwater Road, Elgin and collapsed, but was found by an Elgin woman. EMS transported the man to the hospital because his face was severely swollen.

An insurance company fired a Lugoff woman, who was also released as a patient at the hospital, for allegedly using fraudulent information to obtain narcotic prescriptions. The woman claimed that her co-worker admitted to using her information to get the medication.

A 23-year-old Chapin woman allegedly swindled a Camden woman out of $900. The Camden woman gave the Chapin woman $600 and then $300 to buy kennel supplies for her dogs. The Chapin woman quit suddenly and refused to give the victim any of the money back or provide any receipts.

An unknown man reportedly threatened an Elgin man with a bow and arrow after he, his two friends and the Elgin man got into an argument while at the Wateree River in Lugoff. 

Someone stole a Weinerman dog from a home on Highway 601. Someone also stole a French Bull Dog from a home on Spring Creek Road, Lugoff.

Someone entered a window of a home on ward Road, Lugoff and stole three firearms and two laptops.

Someone made more than $2,000 worth of purchases on a Lugoff woman’s credit card.
