Sheriff’s Office

A woman said several men raped her at an Orangeburg hotel while she was under the influence of an unknown drug, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The woman said she went to her sister's home on April 30 and stayed there for about four hours.

The woman had about three to four beers but said she was not intoxicated when she left the residence, the report said.

The woman did not remember leaving the driveway, but says she remembers waking up at an Orangeburg hotel.

When she awoke, there were several men in the room forcing themselves on her, she said.

She recalled an unknown male wrapping a sheet over her after stopping the others, according to the incident report.

The woman said she does not remember all the details of the incident due to blacking out several times.

The woman said the male who helped her told her the other men, “thought she was a hooker and paid her for sex."

The following day, the woman went to the Regional Medical Center and was examined, the report said. She reported the incident May 5 and told law enforcement that hospital staff informed her she was drugged with an unknown drug during the incident.

Fearing the individuals were going to enter into her residence through the back door, the woman and her entire family ran out the front door to a neighbor's home and stayed there until the arrival of law enforcement.

Officers said they were unable to find any physical evidence to corroborate the woman's story.

The trailer is valued at $2,000. It held about $1,000 worth of household furniture that was being readied for delivery, the incident report said.
