Man arrested in connection with abduction attempt

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - One person has been arrested in connection with the attempted abduction of a 20-year-old woman along South Ocean Boulevard last Wednesday.

Capt. David Knipes, spokesman for the Myrtle Beach Police Department, said Shaun Taylor was arrested exactly a week after he and two others attempted to abduct Randa Massey in the 2200 block of South Ocean Boulevard.

The victim told police she was walking to a nearby mini-mart when a pale blue van approached her. Two men inside of the vehicle, Massey said, grabbed her by the waist and arms in an attempt to pull her inside of an open van door.

Police asked the public to be on the lookout for pale blue, older-model box van with a large number of rust spots in connection to the attempted abduction. The victim said she remembered a square, yellow sticker located on the rear-passenger window.

Two other men, according to police, are being sought in connection to the case.

Anyone with any additional information regarding Massey's attempted abduction is asked to call the Myrtle Beach Police Department immediately.
