A Greenwood man is facing criminal domestic violence and kidnapping charges after police say he took a woman to an abandoned house against her will and assaulted her.
According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, the victim went to the Sheriff’s Office just after 9 a.m. on July 26 to report the incident. The victim told police that Travis Lamont Curry, 33, picked her up from the McDonald’s on S. Main Street at about 6:45 a.m. that morning. The victim said that Curry was driving at excessive speeds and ignoring traffic signals and stop signs.
According to the report, Curry made numerous references to killing both himself and the victim. The victim told police that Curry took her to an abandoned house somewhere in the vicinity of Cedar Springs Road in Bradley. The victim told police that Curry grabbed her by her hair when she attempted to flee the abandoned house. Curry then told the victim that he was going to the car to get something with which to kill them both. The victim then ran from the house and hid in some bushes until Curry left the area. The victim then flagged down an Abbeville County deputy who was on his way to work. The deputy took the victim to GCSO to file a report.
Curry has been charged with criminal domestic violence and kidnapping.
