The woman said she went to an Orangeburg nightclub on July 25. She said she didn’t remember leaving the nightclub, but she recalled an unknown male waking her up at an unknown location.

She said the man then drove her back to her vehicle.

During the car ride, she asked the man if they’d engaged in sexual activity and the man said that they had, the report said.

She arrived at her vehicle and went home.

Once she got home, the woman went to sleep and then went to work.

She said that she began to feel emotional at work, so she called a friend who then took her to a hospital in Lexington for treatment.
