Orangeburg, SC (WCBD) – The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who they say forced a woman at the threat of a weapon to drive him around Orangeburg County.
“This individual demanded to be taken to several locations,” said Sheriff Leroy Ravenell. “He gave this young lady the impression he was armed.”
Investigators were notified of the kidnapping when she called to report the incident early Saturday.
The woman said she stopped at a Bamberg Highway business to pick up a few things just before midnight on Friday.
At that point, a man implying he had a weapon walked up to her and demanded she give him a ride.
The woman said she drove the man to several locations in Orangeburg before he left the car.
Security personnel at a North Road business provided photos said to depict the man in question.
If anyone has seen this individual, they are asked to call the OCSO at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
