3 Ga. men accused in rape, kidnapping arrested

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Columbus police say three men accused of raping and shooting a woman before setting her on fire have been arrested and are expected to appear in court Monday.

Police say 23-year-old Robert Carl Johnson, 26-year-old Joey Betrail Garron, and 23-year-old Ketorie Glover are accused of forcing a woman they met at a party into her car at gunpoint and raping her. Authorities say the woman was then shot before she and her car were set on fire and abandoned. Police responding to calls about someone screaming for help found her Sunday morning.

The victim was hospitalized and underwent extensive treatment.

Lt. John McMicheal told the Ledger-Enquirer of Columbus that the three are charged with several offenses including rape, kidnapping and arson.

It's unclear if the suspects have attorneys.
