An Ash man who was out on bail on sexual assault charges is accused of raping and kidnapping the same woman Monday.
Richard Teremaine Gore, 30, of 5246 Marlow Road, was out of jail on $50,000 bail when he broke the straps of his GPS tracking device, which was court ordered, and drove to Little River, S.C.
Gore drove to the victim’s house and used a stolen Remington pistol to kidnap the woman, according to arrest warrants released Tuesday night by the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office.
Warrants indicate Gore drove the woman to his home on Marlow Road in Ash and assaulted her. Deputies responded to Gore’s home after receiving a kidnapping call when he sped away on Etheridge Road and Ash Little River Road in a Jeep Liberty.
During the chase in which Gore’s vehicle exceeded the posted speed limit signs by 15 mph, Gore struck Deputy Daniel Brown’s vehicle. Gore also tried to hit Deputy Adolph Ford’s vehicle, according to warrants.
Gore was in possession of cocaine when he was arrested, according to warrants.
Emily Flax, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman, said the events took place from the late hours Sunday night into early Monday morning.
Gore faces charges of first-degree rape, second-degree kidnapping, two counts of assaulting a government official with a deadly weapon, fleeing to elude arrest, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, assault on a female, assault by pointing a gun, felony possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen firearm and two counts of injury to personal property.
Gore is incarcerated at the Brunswick County Detention Facility. His bail was set at $4 million.
While out on bond, he was facing charges of first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping, assault by strangulation and assault on a female stemming from the May incident involving the same woman.
Warrants allege Gore “choked the victim until she lost consciousness and left bruises around her neck area” during the alleged May rape.
Gore was previously convicted on felony drug charges in South Carolina. He was convicted in January 2007 on charges of possession of controlled substances with the intent to distribute, which is a first degree felony in South Carolina, arrest warrants show.
