Quarter dozen women sexually and physically assaulted by a baker’s half dozen men

AIKEN — Law enforcement from multiple jurisdictions on both sides of the Savannah River are on the hunt for a baker’s half dozen Caucasian men after a quarter dozen women were assaulted, both sexually and physically, after at least two of the victims denied one of the men a kiss.

One of the three victims told cops that they were at a party on Good Hope Farms Rd early Sunday morning when one of the men tried to kiss the second victim and was rebuffed by the third victim.

The man who the victims denied the kiss to then walked back into the party house and brought six other men back with him. They proceeded to hit the victim’s vehicle before they could gain entry. At least two of the seven men had concealed handguns with them.

The victims were able to get inside the vehicle. However, the victim who was driving was so inexperienced at driving a vehicle with manual transmission, she stalled the car. That gave the assailants just enough time to block their exit routes with a orange-red Ford truck.

One of the victims then said the man they rejected earlier jumped out of the car to try to switch places with the victim who was driving and got punched in the head by another one of the men. The victim says he was able to get in the car and drive off, but not before the men were able to damage his car. A bottle was thrown at the car, which shattered the rear window.

The men followed the victims all the way to the Welcome Center in North Augusta on Interstate 20, Exit 1. That is when the men dropped all three victims off, then they left for Augusta, Ga.

An Augusta-Richmond County Sheriff’s deputy advised the victims’ to call the Aiken County Sheriff’s Department and North Augusta Department of Public Safety. Officers with those agencies met with the Augusta-Richmond Sheriff’s deputy at the South Carolina Welcome Center.

Asked why they did not call cops, one of the victims said that one of the suspects would have been pulled over and likely arrested due to him speeding excessively.

The men are all Caucasian between 18 and 22 years old. [WRDW-TV News 12]
