A woman who says she was picked up by people she didn’t know and taken to a party the location of which she is not sure of, claims that while there she was attacked and beaten into unconsciousness by at least three people.
The incident report states a deputy met with the victim Monday afternoon at Wallace Thomson Hospital. The victim said that sometime after dark the previous evening she was at a convenience store near the intersection of SC 215 and Old Bailey Road when she got into an SUV with a man and a woman, neither of whom she knew. She said she then rode with them to a field, possibly in the Cross Keys area or across the county line in either Laurens County or Spartanburg County. The woman said there was an old, rundown shed in the field and a party was underway.
While there, the victim said she was assaulted by several people, possibly two women and a man. The victim said she either passed out or was knocked out during the assault. She said she came to Monday morning and got a ride with another man she did not know who took her back to Buffalo and dropped her off near where she’d been picked up the night before.
The report states the victim could not give a description of either of the vehicles she rode in and did not remember seeing anyone she knew at the party where she was assaulted.
After taking the victim’s statement, the deputy photographed several bruises and scratches the report states were all over the majority of the woman’s body. The woman also had bite marks on her right hand and thumb.
The following incidents are also being investigated by the sheriff’s office.
Damaged Items Stolen
Most of them had been damaged in a fire earlier this month, but that didn’t make a Carlisle woman’s property any less enticing to the thief or thieves who stole them.
The incident report states a deputy was dispatched Saturday morning to the Tuckertown Road area of Carlisle to assist the SC Department of Natural Resources search for prowler that had been on the victim’s property at 634 Tuckertown Road. While the deputy was in the area, the report states the victim arrived and went to her property where she discovered several items, many of them damaged in a fire earlier this month had been stolen sometime between 8 a.m. April 18 and 10 a.m. that morning. The victim said told the deputy the following items had been stolen:
• Well pump ($500)
• Wiring from the residence ($100)
• Tin from the barn ($500)
• Push mower ($250)
• Various tools ($250)
• Bed frames ($150)
The victim said all the stolen items except the well pump had been damaged in a fire earlier this month. The victim said the pump and its pipes had been stolen leaving nothing but a hole in the ground.
