Deputies said they have arrested the man accused of breaking into a Greenville home, sexually assaulting a woman and shooting at her boyfriend Sunday morning.

Greenville County deputies said they were able to identify Donald Young, 27, as the suspect in the Stallings Road assault and home invasion case.

FOX Carolina spoke with one of the victims on Monday who claimed the suspect broke into their home and held him and his girlfriend at gunpoint.

Deputies said Young forced Seth on the ground while he raped his girlfriend.

"He toyed with me. He had me in here doing pushups. He would make me come up, halfway up, halfway down and up," Seth said.

He said at one point when the suspect went back to his girlfriend, he grabbed a cross from the dresser.

"I threw it out of the room to distract him to get his attention," Seth said.

However, he said it only made the intruder angrier, and the suspect shot him in the leg.

Deputies said Seth ran away, Young chased after him firing a few more shots, according to deputies.

Deputies said a bullet grazed Seth and both victims were treated at the hospital.

Young was arrested on Wednesday and charged with criminal sexual conduct first degree, burglary first degree, attempted murder and two counts of kidnapping.

As a policy, FOX Carolina does not identify sexual assault victims. In this case, the woman and her boyfriend wanted their story told. They allowed a FOX Carolina crew to get pictures and video of the home.
