FAIR PLAY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office said a man is in custody on a kidnapping charge after an incident on Thursday.

Deputies said the victim met with 24-year-old Austin Blaine Myers in Fair Play, who had previously threatened to have her arrested. The two had a relationship, deputies said, and Myers got into the victim's vehicle and was driven back to her residence.

When the victim got out of the car, went into the home and locked the doors, deputies said Myers made entry into the home and pushed the victim into a room where he assaulted her and wouldn't allow her to leave.

When he eventually left, deputies said the victim was able to escape with her children.

Myers was arrested and charged with kidnapping, first-degree burglary and second-degree criminal domestic violence.
