HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A Surfside Beach woman says she was doing the responsible thing, taking a cab home after a night out, but it became a nightmare after she says the cab driver sexually assaulted her.

"The way he acted, it was almost like it was a natural thing to him," said the victim, who asked not to be named.

She says early in the morning, she left Scores, a Socastee sports bar. The bar called a cab for her, but she says she took a different cab, preferring not to wait.

"He turned into Deerfield," she said. "I thought maybe he was just going through Deerfield to get to Business 17."

But the victim says the vehicle's driver stopped somewhere in the subdivision, pulled her into the back of the car, and assaulted her.

She claims the cab driver then kicked her out of the car, leaving her in the subdivision. She says she wandered around until finding a home, and knocking on the door. She spoke with police, then went to the hospital. Now, she's waiting in fear on test results.

"I just can't even describe it," she says, "to have that fear. My grandson, I don't even want to kiss him."

She says her biggest fear is that her attacker is still out there, and could find another victim to attack.

The detective in charge of this case says it is an active investigation. Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to call the Horry County Police Department.
