Two purported drug dealers allegedly threatened a woman at gunpoint after they picked her up while she was walking on the way to her boyfriend's house Wednesday, Sept. 22.

According to a Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) report, the 22-year-old woman said she was walking down Brown Road when the suspects drove up in a white car and asked her if she wanted a ride. She said no at first but then changed her mind. After getting in the car, she reportedly told the people in the car she had to get to her boyfriend's house because she had received a call from her boyfriend's roommate saying a drug dealer was coming over there for money. She said the roommate said her boyfriend didn't have the money.

At that point, the suspects revealed they were the people her boyfriend owed money to and the driver allegedly pulled out a pistol. He allegedly pointed the gun at the woman's head and demanded his money. The victim said she told the suspect she would get him his money that Friday and got his cellphone number.
