Rape reported at department store

The Goody's store on Deans Bridge Road was closed down Monday afternoon while deputies investigated a reported rape there.

The suspect is described as a thin black male, 15 to 20 years old, wearing a long-sleeved red shirt and a long gold chain.

The victim says a man with a gun was there when she went into the bathroom, and he raped her. Police say he was waiting for her.

Surveillance video shows the two entering the bathroom separately, then emerging together. The man had his arm around the victim's neck.

The victim says the man wanted her to give him a ride. She says she told him she needed to go back into the store for her keys.

An employee then confronted the man and he escaped on foot.
