Georgia newlyweds accused of kidnapping, raping Florida woman
HIALEAH, Fla. (CBS12) —
Newlyweds from Georgia are accused of carjacking, kidnapping and raping a woman in South Florida while on their honeymoon.
Investigators say the crime happened a week ago Sunday at a Publix on 2nd Avenue in Hialeah, Florida. According to the arrest report, police said Rashada Horsley attacked and knocked out a woman who had just pulled her car out of a parking space.
The woman told police when she came to, she saw Horsley driving her car and a man, identified by police as Horsley's husband Timothy Lowe, in the car. She said Lowe choked and punched her.
Police said the suspects drove to a Motel 6 and sexually assaulted the woman. The woman told police the suspects became distracted and she managed to escape, according to the report.
Miami-Dade Police said the couple's crime spree came to an end a day later when authorities arrested the pair on unrelated charges of indecent exposure. Police said the two walked into a Walgreens store while in the buff. A short time later, the two tried to steal sodas from 7-Eleven. That's when police linked the couple to the kidnapping. CBS Miami reported the judge made note of the couple being recently married and on their honeymoon.
The two are facing charges of kidnapping, robbery-carjacking, sexual battery and grand theft.
