Three men have been arrested for allegedly raping, shooting and torching a Georgia woman, who managed to survive the vicious assault, on New Year's Day.
According to the Ledger-Enquirer, Joey Betrail Garron, 28, Robert Carl Johnson, 23, and Ketorie Glover, 23, all of Columbus, Ga., have been arrested for the brutal crime.
The New York Daily News noted that authorities have said that the men forced the woman into her car, sexually assaulted her, shot her, set her on fire and left her in the vacant parking lot.
In a news release Sunday, Police Lt. John McMichael said that the men would face felony charges that include aggravated assault, rape, kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated sexual battery, aggravated sodomy, arson first degree, hijacking a motor vehicle and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
The woman luckily lived through the New Year’s Day attack, but was hospitalized and needed medical treatment.
It is unclear if the victim or another person led police to the three men. It is also unknown if any of the suspects have attorneys.
