Hialeah, FL - A Georgia couple on their honeymoon kidnapped a woman from a grocery store parking lot, took her to another location, and raped her, according to CBS News.

The incident occurred on Sunday, July 9, in the Publix parking lot, after the victim had finished shopping and was about to leave. The female suspect, Rashada Hurley, age 32, crossed in front of the vehicle, and approached the driver's door. When the victim rolled her window down to see what was going on, Hurley punched her in the side of her head, and knocked her out.

When the victim came to, she realized she had been moved. She told police that Hurley was in the driver's seat, and Timothy Lowe, Hurley's husband, age 37, was in the car. The victim said that Hurley began choking her, and Lowe began punching her in the face, while holding her down. She said she was eventually pushed into the back seat.

Hurley and Lowe then drove the victim's car to a Motel 6 with the victim in the back seat. The couple then rented a room in her name. Once inside their motel room, the victim said that both Hurley and Lowe raped her, forced her into performing oral sex on both of them, and forced her into anal sex.

At some point, the victim said that Hurley and Lowe became distracted and she was able to escape.

Police said that Rashada Hurley and Timothy Lowe fled in the victim's vehicle with the victim's property.

On Monday, July 10, police said that Hurley and Lowe walked into a Walgreen's, naked, but didn't buy anything. They left and went to a 7-11, still naked, got themselves each a soft drink without paying for them.

Hurley and Lowe were arrested at the 7-11 for indecent exposure after a convenience store employee called 911. Hurley was also charged with petty theft.

While in custody, police connected both of them with the victim's kidnapping and rape. The victim was able to pick one of them out of a lineup.

A judge noticed in bond court on Thursday, July 13, that the couple had just gotten married and were on their honeymoon, according to Fox News.

Additional charges of kidnapping, carjacking, grand theft, and sexual battery are pending against both suspects. Both Rashada Hurley and Timothy Lowe are in jail under no bond.
