A Conway man remains behind bars after a 17-year-old woman said in a police report that he kidnapped, and then sexually assaulted and beat her.

Kahmil Kevy Cooper, 19, of Conway, has been charged with assault and battery, first degree; assault and battery, third degree, criminal sexual conduct and two counts of kidnapping, according to J. Reuben Long Detention Center booking records.

The charges stem from a series of events that occurred between March 26 and March 28, an Horry County police report said.

According to the report, at about 7 a.m. March 26, the suspect invited the victim to go shopping. Once she got in his vehicle, he referenced photos she recently posted to social media and then began to physically assault her, the report said.

The report said the suspect drove her to a home in Conway, rushed her inside and forced her to perform a sex act. He videotaped the incident and then posted it to social media, the report said.

While at the residence, the suspect also hit her on the cheek with a piece of the bed frame, the report continued.

The report goes on to say that the victim stayed the night, and then they both went to a friend's house near Broadway at the Beach. She said she didn't try to flee because she was tired of fighting with the suspect.

At some point, she convinced him to take her to the hospital due to severe swelling to her cheek. Police were able to find her there because she had been classified as a missing person because her family couldn't find her.
