MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A man was taken into custody after police said he trapped a woman inside a motel room and then sexually assaulted her.

Tyre Deshon Carter is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.

Arrest warrants show that the accuser was cleaning an empty room Monday at the White Sands Motel on North Kings Highway when Carter entered the room, closed the door and began fondling her.

She said she tried to pull away but then Carter put his hand over her mouth, pinned her down on the bed and then sexually assaulted her, according to the warrants.

Documents say he ran away from the scene, but he was apprehended a short distance away by Myrtle Beach police officers.
