Charleston County sheriff's deputies are investigating after a woman reported being raped while showering in a bath house Wednesday night in Hollywood.
The assault happened around 9 p.m. at Lake Aire RV Park and Campground, 4375 Highway 162 in Hollywood, according to an incident report.
A 59-year-old woman told investigators that she was taking a shower in a bath house at the park when she heard someone peel back the curtain. Before the woman could turn around, the person bashed her head against a concrete wall, knocking her unconscious, deputies said.
When the woman awoke later in the night, she was lying on the floor in the corner of the stall, the report stated. She put on her robe, went home and passed out, deputies said.
Hours later, another woman found her as she walked, in tears, toward the park office.
When questioned by investigators, the assaulted woman complained of bruises and tears to her genitalia, deputies said. Her face and shoulder were also bruised, deputies said.
The woman was taken to Medical University Hospital for treatment. She never saw her attacker, deputies said.
The incident remains under investigation, sheriff's Maj. Eric Watson said.
