Authorities in Alabama say a woman has been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to kidnap another woman and subject her to a gang rape.
According to the New York Post, 28-year-old Alexandria Lauren Hancock is accused of robbing the 34-year-old victim and was taken into police custody on Friday after a grand jury found sufficient evidence last year to issue warrants for criminal charges including rape, kidnapping, robbery, and conspiracy to commit rape.
While Hancock was the only named defendant in the case, she allegedly plotted with “one or more persons” to take part in the rape.
Indictments filed the case did not provide details including when the alleged incident occurred.
The Montgomery woman was allegedly armed with a handgun when she approached the victim during the robbery, as reported by the Montgomery Advertiser.
Court records indicate a grand jury heard evidence against her in July.
As of the latest reports available, Hancock had been released on $100,000 bond. Montgomery County Sheriff Derrick Cunningham said he could not comment any further on the matter.
Neither the suspect nor the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office were available to provide an an additional statement as of this writing.
