A 23-year-old man is behind bars after approaching a woman in a hotel parking lot early Friday morning.

He asked her for a ride to the hospital, then took out a pistol once he was in the car and engaged in sexual battery with her, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety.

Officials with the ADPS said when they got the 9-1-1 call, it came in as a traffic accident, just after 4A.M.

Detective Jeremy Hembree with the Aiken Department of Public Safety said, "We received a report of a traffic collision on Medical Park Drive. Officers found a black male in the rear seat of the vehicle unconscious and a semi-automatic pistol was under him."

The victim told authorities she drove the vehicle backwards into a tree on purpose to escape Fuller. She then flagged down another person, who took her to the Aiken Regional Medical Center.

Fuller was arrested immediately. He is being held at the Aiken County Detention Center and is  facing charges of kidnapping, criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, the unlawful carrying of a pistol and the possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

The victim is said to be recovering, according to ADPS.
