Deputies said they arrested two people accused of kidnapping a woman from a home in Spartanburg after pistol-whipping her and two other women.

Spartanburg County deputies said they were called to a home on Anchor Street about 1:20 a.m. Tuesday after two of the victims said 34-year-old Sae Ellis assaulted them before leaving with the third victim.

According to a sheriff's office report, Ellis kicked in the front door of the home yelling at one woman, hitting her in the face with a gun multiple times. Ellis also attacked two other women with the gun before forcing the first woman out of the home with a gun to her head, deputies said.

Ellis told the woman that she was going to die tonight, the report said. Deputies said they tracked Ellis to her last known address and found her with 22-year-old James Shields III, who they said also had a gun during the kidnapping.

The two were with the victim inside of a car outside of the Hidden Park Apartments on Spruce Street, the report said. Deputies said they also called in narcotics investigators to assist in the investigation.

Shields and Ellis were both arrested and charged with one count of kidnapping. Ellis was also charged with three counts assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature

Shields was given a $35,000 bond while Ellis was denied a bond in court on Tuesday.
