The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said six people are facing charges after a woman was kidnapped and robbed at gunpoint.

Deputies said the victim, a woman who was owed money by Brian Lloyd McElrath, was lured to an address on Snowmill Road when McElrath told her he would repay part of the money.

When she arrived on scene, deputies said two men, Jacob Lee Gwinn and Michael Dale Tucker, held her at gunpoint with a revolver and a semi-automatic pistol.

According to the incident report, Gwinn said he "did not want to do this but Brian told them to do it."

Deputies said Crystal Star Lawson, Claudia Nicole Lawson and Angela Denise McElrath took the victim into the bathroom, stripped her of her clothing and took $180 in cash from her before getting her redressed.

While the victim was in the bathroom, deputies said suspects took items form her vehicle.

When she was released, the suspects told her they would kill her, her children and her grandchildren if she told anyone, the report states.

Brian McElrath, who deputies said owed the victim $700, is charged with accessory before the fact of a felony.

Gwinn and Tucker are charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and unlawful carrying of a handgun.

Angelia McElrath, Lawson and Watson are charged with armed robbery and kidnapping.
