Second suspect arrested in Beaufort County sexual assault case

(Beaufort-AP) February 8, 2007 - Beaufort County sheriff's deputies say a second man has been arrested in the rape of a teen held at gunpoint for 13 hours.

Thirty-six-year-old Vincent Charles Gardner is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct in last week's attack.

Lieutenant Jim Bukoffsky says two men raped the 15-year-old girl after she was dropped off at a St. Helena Island home against her will Friday night.

The girl managed to escape 13 hours later and run home.

Fifty-two-year-old Thomas Louis Davis was arrested Sunday and charged with first-degree criminal sexual assault, kidnapping, pointing a gun at a person and weapons violations.

Investigators are looking for the woman who dropped the girl off at the house.
