Suspected Serial Rapist Could Face New Charges

Beaufort deputies say that they're still waiting on results from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division before they can say for sure.

Alleged serial rapist Ron Young made his first appearance in court in Savannah last week. Chatham County is charging him with raping and kidnapping two women in Savannah last summer.

Richmond Hill police are also charging him in the rape of a woman in Plantation apartments last September.

South Carolina expects to get the results by Friday. Meanwhile, Chatham County has pushed back Young's preliminary hearing until August 4th.
