The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a report of a kidnapping sexual battery case after a Fort Walton woman reported being forced into a car and sexually battered around 1 a.m. on June 15.
Deputies were called to the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center at around 11:20 a.m. Monday. The woman reported the attack had taken place earlier in the morning after she went for a walk on Beal Parkway. She said she was approached by two men in a dark green four door sedan. The car drove off but returned and she was hit in the head and thrown in the back seat.
The woman said she was driven to a wooded spot in the Green Acres Road area and was raped by one of the individuals. The woman said she managed to eventually get free and hid in the woods until the men left.
The victim described the drive as a black male with short dreads. The passenger is described as a black male wearing a dark blue shirt with the word FUBU across it. He was also wearing a black baseball hat.
