A South Carolina man is behind bars after police say he allegedly kidnapped and attacked a woman in a motel room before she was able to escape without any clothes on and seek help.

In September 2023, the victim and suspect, Brandon Marshall, met at a gathering and decided to go someplace private, WJBF reported.

The pair checked into a motel in Aiken and Marshall allegedly started using cocaine and was unable to perform sexually, officials said.

As the evening continued, Marshall became more and more hostile, the victim claimed to police.

Marshall allegedly threw the woman's phone against the wall, pinned her against the wall, punched her in the face and then strangled her, police said.

At one point, the victim said she was able to get away from Marshall, grab her purse and head toward the door.

However, authorities say Marshall snatched her purse away as she was fleeing the motel room.

Once outside, the victim reportedly started knocking on other doors trying to find help before she ended up in the motel lobby, where employees phoned police.
