A couple honeymooning in south Florida kidnapped a woman from a supermarket parking lot and viciously raped her.
Rashada Hurley, 32, and Timothy Lowe, 37, beat and kidnapped a 27-year-old woman as she was rearing out of a parking space outside a Hialeah supermarket. They drove her car to a Motel 6 in Miami and proceeded to assault and rape her.
In the midst of accosting their victim, Hurley hit the woman over the head with a large object, leaving the woman unconscious.
The victim told authorities that when she woke up, Hurley was choking her and Lowe was driving her car.
Hurley allegedly used the woman’s credit card to purchase a room. An affidavit added that the woman was raped and forced to perform sex acts on both.
Luckily, the suspects became distracted and the woman was able to escape the room.
The next day, the couple entered a convenience store naked. Police arrested the couple and charged them with theft and indecent exposure before they were linked to the motel rape.
The victim identified Lowe and Hurley through a photo line-up. They were jailed in Miami-Dade County on kidnapping, carjacking, robbery and sexual battery charges.
