A 20-year-old Charleston man says he and his girlfriend were beaten, robbed, forced to strip and tossed naked into the river at popular Waterfront Park.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reported Thursday that 20-year-old John Shafer and his 19-year-old girlfriend walked into a hotel lobby about 2:30 a.m. Nov. 23 naked and covered in mud. A police report says the two were sitting near the end of the pier about an hour earlier when another couple walked up.
Shafer told police the female robber slapped his girlfriend in the face, and the male punched him several times before ordered them to turn over their money and cell phones. Shafer says the other couple said they had a knife and ordered them to take off their clothes, which were thrown into the Cooper River after them.
