Suspect Sought in Kidnapping, Rape

A Savannah College of Art and Design student says she was kidnapped and sexually assaulted. Now the school is working to make sure their students are safe.

The 18-year-old student says she was abducted at gunpoint by a man as she was getting some books out of her truck about 1pm last Friday afternoon. It happened in the parking lot of the Turner House located at Turner and Fahm Streets.

She says the suspect made her drive to West Savannah near Tuten Street then he forced her into a wooded area and raped her. The suspect forced her back into her truck, and while driving back she rammed another car and the suspect fled.

The college has stepped up security and issued emails to students letting them know about the incident.

At this point police have no suspects. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234.2020.
