Sheriff’s Office

A woman told deputies her father’s friend drove her to Santee State Park and sexually assaulted her, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The woman said her father’s friend arrived at her house at about 1:20 a.m. Wednesday. He said her father sent him to take her to her boyfriend’s house.

The man drove her to Santee State Park, she said.

When he parked the vehicle, the woman asked him, “Why are we parked at Santee State Park?”

He replied, “You’re going to give it to me or I’m going to take it,” according to the report.

She alleged he then forced her to take off her clothes and sexually assaulted her.

She said she asked him several times to stop, but he refused.

After the alleged assault, she put on her clothes and left the area on foot, the woman said.

She refused any medical attention and told deputies that she took a shower and burned her clothes.

The criminal investigation division is looking into the matter.

In an unrelated incident, a Kings Road woman called deputies at 5:58 a.m. Wednesday to state that she believes the federal government is interfering with her cellphone calls.

She believes the federal government is somehow harassing her or attempting to monitor her because she’s filed for disability, the report said.

She said her attorney advised her to report anything that seems suspicious.

The responding deputy advised her to call law enforcement if she notices anything suspicious.
