A Lugoff woman told Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies she was abducted from her home and raped.

According to a KCSO report, the woman said a man knocked on her door the morning of Monday, Oct. 28 and forcibly pushed his way in. The man allegedly blindfolded the woman and asked “Where the (expletive) at?” and started digging through her belongings.

The woman said she could tell that there was another man in the residence. The woman said she was then put in the back of a car and handcuffed. One of the men allegedly pointed what felt like a gun on the back of her hands and threatened her. After an undeterminable amount of time, one of the men reportedly told the other to go to “the spot.” The woman said the suspect eventually parked the car and that she was placed in her own vehicle.

The woman said she was driven around for a long period of time before being taken to a home. The two men allegedly handcuffed her to a chair, still blindfolded. The woman claimed she was left there through Tuesday. She also said, however, that she was fed and allowed to make three calls.

After allegedly being sexually assaulted, the two men allegedly put her back into her own vehicle and drove her around for some time. The victim said when they stopped the vehicle, they told her to count to 30 and then she could take off her blindfold. She said when she took off her blindfold, she found herself in a back alley between two Columbia apartment buildings. She said she then drove herself to a gas station and then the emergency room.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Oct. 28 - Nov. 3:
