Two teenage girls, 13 and 15, claim they were held against their will at a friend’s house in Elgin, forced to wear a mask over their eyes and drink something that “drugged” them.

According to a Kershaw County Sheriffs’ Office (KCSO) incident report, one of the girls also said they had been led into some woods and forced to have sex with a 20-year-old male. Deputies, who found the girls walking down Fort Jackson Road near Elgin, said both teenagers smelled of alcohol.

Deputies contacted the girls’ parents who came to KCSO headquarters and were present while deputies interviewed the girls. At one point, deputies called EMS because one of the girls complained they were having trouble breathing. Medical personnel checked both girls and left; their parents said they would take them to the hospital if necessary.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Oct. 14-20:

A Cassatt woman claimed that a Camden man stole her purse, diamond ring and prescription drugs before pushing her to the ground and spitting on her in a Camden store. The woman reported that another man tackled her and hit her in the head.

A Camden woman said her daughter’s uncle -- whom she claimed is a sex offender -- may have inappropriately touched the girl. The woman said her daughter told her that her uncle was “mean to her” and touched her private parts.

Someone broke into a home on Springhill Road, Camden and stole $3,450 worth of electronics, tools and a commemorative bottle of alcohol.

Someone one broke into a home on Brewer Springs Road, Camden, and stole more than $1,500 in electronics.

Someone stole more than $1,000 in electronics and weapons from a home on Old Georgetown, Bethune.

Someone stole more than $3,700 in guns and ammunition from a home on Grey Fox Road, Lugoff.

Someone broke into a home on Highway 1, in Cassatt, and stole a rifle and a pack of cigarettes.

A 41-year-old Lugoff man is accused of raping his juvenile niece while she was at his house.

Someone bought a computer for a total of $948 using a Lugoff man’s eBay account.

County deputies also assisted other agencies, served bench warrants and dealt with 16 simple assaults; nine larcenies; eight vandalisms; five public disorderly conducts, harassments, thefts from buildings and burglaries; four shopliftings; and one case each of pointing and presenting a firearm, DUI and suspicious fire.

The Camden Police Department (CPD) arrested a man for allegedly burglarizing a Rutledge Street business after the owner of a neighboring business heard someone moving in a rear storage unit.

According to a CPD report, the business owner opened the door to the storage unit to find the suspect standing in the middle of the unit. The subject told the man he was taking over the business and was looking to put a game room in the unit. The witness contacted the actual business owner, who said he had not given anyone permission to be there. When officers arrived, they noticed a stack of records with molded covers.

The subject admitted that he was trying to take the records and several motorcycle parts that were also found on the scene from the storage area.

The CPD reported the following other incidents during the period of Sept. 14-17:

A 61-year-old man was caught stealing meat and two bars of soap from a Camden grocery store.

Camden officers also assisted other agencies, served bench warrants and dealt with one drunkenness, emotionally/mentally disturbed person and DUS.
