Edgefield Man Arrested on Rape Charge

web posted July 9, 2014

EDGEFIELD An Edgefield man was taken into custody Tuesday morning and has been charged with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree for the alleged rape of a young Edgefield woman around 2 am on June 29 at a home in Edgefield. The woman, who was visiting a friend, said 26-year-old Kenneth Demetrius Rowe came into the bedroom where she was sleeping and began asking for sex and she refused numerous times. Then things turned violent.

According to an incident report, Rowe forced himself on the woman while choking her and she was unsuccessful in fighting him off during the final attack, which lasted just a few minutes and he walked out of the room telling the woman, "thank you," as he left.

The woman was able to fight off previous attempts by Rowe prior to the alleged rape, the report states.

Photographs were taken of the woman's injuries, which included injuries to her neck. She was transported to the Edgefield County Hospital for medical evidence to be collected and the woman being treated for her injuries.

After launching the investigation, a warrant for Rowe's arrest was issued and he was taken into custody at the County Courthouse after showing up for a Family Court hearing.

Rowe, who is not new to the criminal court systems in Edgefield County, is being held without bond pending a bond hearing by a Circuit Court Judge.
