What led to Rashada Hurley and Timothy Lowe a Florida honeymooning couple kidnapping and raping a 27 year old woman. Arrested after stealing soda at a local 7/11 store.
A Florida honeymooning couple have been arrested after kidnapping and raping a woman after grabbing their victim from a supermarket car park, Sunday week ago.
The incident led to 32 year old newly wedded bride, Rashada Hurley and her groom, Timothy Lowe, 37, being held at Miami Dade County Jail and charged with kidnapping, carjacking, robbery and sexual battery charges.
Bride and groom, both originating from Georgia have since been denied bond and are now awaiting trial reported local10news.
Police say the newlyweds beat and kidnapped their 27-year-old victim as she was reversing out of parking space outside a Hialeah supermarket, where upon they drove her to a Miami, Motel 6 on Northwest 36th Street in her own car where they raped her.
The couple were able to make their getaway in the woman’s vehicle after Hurley got out of her vehicle and hit the woman over the head with something rendering her unconscious. From there the newly wedded couple drove to a nearby motel where they raped their victim.
The victim told police that when she woke up Hurley was choking her and Lowe was driving her car.
Hurley allegedly used the woman’s credit card and driving license to purchase a room.
An affidavit added that the woman was raped and forced to perform sex acts on both.
The victim was able to escape after her abductors and rapists became ‘distracted’, with the woman escaping the room.
But it gets better.
The following day, circa Monday morning, 3am, the couple entered a 7-11 convenience store naked where they poured themselves sodas without paying.
Police arrested the naked couple a block away from the store.
They covered them with blankets and charged them with theft and indecent exposure before being linked to the motel rape.
Lowe and Hurley were arrested and charged with indecent exposure and petit theft, but were released once they paid a fine. The pair were later arrested for the far more serious crimes.
The victim identified Lowe and Hurley through a photo line-up reported nbcmiami.
The couple were arrested Wednesday.
Hurley and Lowe were described as a Georgia couple, but jail records do not list a hometown for either.
Miami-Dade County Judge Victoria Sigler described their fate as ‘one hell of a honeymoon.’
To date authorities have not told what inspired the honeymooning couple and whether there have been drugs or alcohol involved during their Honeymoon ‘adventure’?
