CAMDEN, S.C. (AP) -- Investigators say a 15-year-old boy has been arrested after he pretended to be a Kershaw County deputy and tried to force a woman to take off her clothes.

Sheriff Jim Matthews said the victim told authorities the fake deputy showed a badge and a flashlight and demanded to come into her Kershaw County home on Oct. 2.

Matthews says she let him in, and he handcuffed her. The fake deputy ordered the woman to take her clothes off, and she said she couldn't do it with her hands cuffed.

The sheriff says the fake deputy removed the handcuffs, and the woman hit the suspect in the face and ran from her home.

Matthews says the boy confessed to the incident and has been charged as a juvenile.
