Police: Newlyweds on honeymoon kidnap random woman, beat and sexually assault her

Georgia newlyweds who were on their honeymoon in Miami are behind bars after allegedly kidnapping a random woman and forcing her to participate in sexual activity inside a motel on Sunday.

Crimesider reports that a 27-year-old victim was driving out of a Publix grocery store on Sunday afternoon when Rashada Horsley, 32, approached her as she was putting her car into reverse. Horsley reportedly knocked on the driver’s side window and when the victim rolled her window down, Horsley reportedly hit her over the head with an object and knocked her out.

The victim told police that when she woke up, she was in the back seat of her own vehicle. Horsley’s husband, 37-year-old Timothy Lowe, was riding in the passenger seat, while his wife was in the driver’s seat.

Horsely reportedly stopped the car and began choking the victim, while Lowe punched her in the face until she passed out. The couple then took her to a Motel 6 in Miami, where they used her credit card to purchase a room. However, Horsley used her Georgia driver’s license as identification, which helped authorities eventually find them.

Once inside the room, the pair reportedly forced the victim to perform oral sex on both of them. They also forced “anal penetration” on her.

At some point, the couple became distracted and the victim fled from the room. Horsley and Lowe later fled in the victim’s car.

The next day, Horsley and Lowe were arrested for walking naked inside a Walgreens store. Police said that they browsed around while nude and left without buying anything. Later that day, they walked into a 7-11 convenience store and reportedly stole two soft drinks.

“(They) open the door and go to the freezer for two sodas, and come back and leave,” Ibis Rodriguez, a 7-11 worker, said. “I’m thinking they are crazy.”

Authorities arrested the couple on indecent exposure. Only Horsely was charged for the soda-stealing; she was given a petty theft charge. Once authorities connected the pair to the victim, they added on carjacking, grand theft auto, kidnapping, and sexual battery charges.

Both are being held at the Miami-Dade jail without bond.
