COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Columbia Police have apprehended the man they say sexually assaulted and kidnapped a woman early Monday morning.

Investigators say 47-year-old Anthony Tyrone Dervin was taken into custody by CPD and SLED at the Walmart on Bush River Road around 1 p.m.

Dervin has been charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, and burglary.

He's accused of breaking into a woman's home on Pembroke Avenue in Rosewood around 5 a.m.

The victim tells CPD that she was woke up to see the suspect standing in her bedroom. He then sexually assaulted the woman and then forced her to drive him to an ATM, investigators said.

Police say the victim noticed people in the area and honked the horn several times to get their attention. At that point, Dervin ran away, according to investigators.

Derwin was transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
